I just stumbled across this and simply could not help myself:

"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." — Albert Einstein

You can replace the word "count" with "value", and it still works. Or one can replace it with "say" or "mean". As you try to fit in other words, the sentence starts to tell us that whatever we think we know can be so strange to us. Perhaps this can ultimately be rephrased by Lao Tzu's words: "The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao".
