A couple quotes that have been sticking in my mind:

"Aesthetics and ethics are one." (Wittgenstein)

"When the man [writing] is frightened by a word, he may have started." (George Oppen as quoted in Rosmarie Waldrop's Dissonance (if you are interested))

Yeah, I'm no Wittgenstein expert, but I like what I take to be the role he grants the ineffable. It's tough though to navigate what looks like mysticism in light of politics. His argument is making more and more sense to me though. As a kind of brake, or a kind of limit.
