"What oft was thought, but ne'er so well express'd."

Such poppycock!
Language and thought are silence
stupidly suppressed.

poppycock [ˈpɒpɪˌkɒk] noun
senseless chatter; nonsense; bullshit.
[from Dutch dialect pappekak, literally: soft excrement, from pap soft + kak dung, turd]

The title quotation is from 'An Essay on Criticism' by Alexander Pope.
