Language can convey such subtle and detailed information, yet it is the listener who must understand and translate the intention of the communicator. In that sense life is a matter of context and is dictated by how we as individuals perceive and understand the spoken word. That is of course bound by education, vocabulary and life experience. How we then understand anything has parameters and is always driven by what we believe and our capacity to understand. One man's view of life and its challenges and opportunities is always individual and therefore in order to communicate effectively, the communicator must take into account the individual, when expressing thoughts via the written or spoken word.
The nuances of languge are then expressed dependant upon the skill of the communicator. Language is indeed a valuable skill in life, and developing the subtleties of expression with carefully crafted words is even more difficult but appreciated as an art.
