sentire {to feel}

“When we reflect that sentence means, literally, ‘a way of thinking’ (latin: sententia) and that it comes from the latin sentire (to feel), we realize that the concepts of sentence and sentence structure are not merely grammatical or merely academic –not negligible in any sense. A sentence is both the opportunity and the limit of thought –what we have to think with and what we have to think in.” –Wendell Berry
