Quote by Alan Wilson Watts
We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.
This quote suggests that our individual thoughts and emotions are not entirely original or owned by us. It highlights the fact that our thinking processes are strongly influenced by the languages and images inherited from society, rather than being solely products of our own creation. It emphasizes the collective nature of human existence, where our thoughts are shaped by the cultural and societal constructs that surround us.
