Nightingale

There is a saying by Plutarch (233a) which I found in Mladen Dolar’s book “A Voice and Nothing More”. Plutarch tells the story of a man who caught a nightingale hoping for a delicious meal. After plucking it he discovered there was hardly anything to eat at all and so he said to the dead bird: ‘You are just a voice and nothing else’.
