Tractatus Pathetico-Poeticus [6.54]

6.54 My sentences irritate as follows: anyone who understands me eventually gets wise to their lack of motive, but only after he has used them as steps to climb down into them. (He must, so to speak, throw away the ladder after he has climbed down it.)

He must fall back upon these sentences, and then he will do history correctly.
