Wendell Berry: "there are limits to what a human language can say. One may believe, as I do, in inspiration, but one must believe knowing that even the most inspired are limited in what they can tell of what they know. We humans write and read, teach and learn, at the inevitable cost of falling short. The language that reveals also obscures."
I think this is true of all creative work. Nothing one makes is ever completely what one would like to see at the end—this is one reason a painting, a print, anything, could also be worked on further.
