From The Journey to the West. The Buddhist Patriarch says:
However, those creatures in your Land of the East are so foolish and unenlightened that I have no choice but to impart to you now the text with words.
This is a significant section of the novel, which redefines a previous judgement, switching “dumb” for “foolish” and “blind” for “unenlightened” and “wordless texts” for “text with words.”
