    Can Be Lived

    It can't be expressed, only can be lived!

    Is this sentence correct? Do you have any similar saying?

    Re: Can Be Lived

    It cannot be expressed in words, it can only be experienced

    By the way, your original sentence is wrong. You'd have to say something like:

    "It can't be expressed, only lived!"

    Or maybe:

    "It can't be expressed; it can only be lived."

    Anupumh's paraphrased version is perfect (except I'd use a semicolon there instead of a comma).
