Mensagem:  Dear Dale,

I did get what you meant. I just hadn't realized (known) that was a common usage. [google registers over 23,000,000 possible matches].

"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without." by Buddha

What I wondered was the choice for "without" since the pair 'within-without' does not seem to be semantically associated, right? [Am I mistaken once again? please, correct me]

I'd guess it's much more a sort of word play, maybe? It sounds good... that's it!?

Can we reason language????
