Pure white

Depois do que escrevi sobre o amor deparei com estas reflexões de Wittgenstein:

Lichtenberg says that very few people have ever seen pure white. So do most people use the word wrong, then? And how did he learn to correct the use? - He constructed an ideal use from the ordinary one. And that is not to say a better one, but one that has been refined along certain lines and in the process something has been carried to extremes.
