    Default Can Be Lived

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

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

    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).
