    Agree or disagree ?

    Here's a quote from ''Enduring love'' by Ian McEwan:



    It's the first underlined sentance.

    i was just curious as to wether you lot think the same ( that you need language in order to think) or you disagree with it ( that you can think without language)

    You can think about pictures in your mind so language isn't really required to think.
