sometimes i feel like this

I found this quote while I was doing some reading for my current essay. I quite like it. I think it sums up how I often feel.

"People who live in exile know that sometimes they need to remain silent because they feel that experiences conveyed in a different language and without their context do not necessarily make sense to others."
