Rungs and ladders

6.54

My propositions serve as elucidations in the following way: anyone who understands me eventually recognizes them as nonsensical, when one has used them—as steps—to climb beyond them. (One must, so to speak, throw away the ladder after one has climbed up it.)
One  must transcend these propositions, and then one will see the world aright.
