I recall in my high school

I recall in my high school French classes that the English language has far more words than the French, and my teacher criticized the English language for this. I don't understand why, though. The more words you have, the more you can convey. Feelings can't ever possibly be completely expressed through words. We assign words to intangible things, catagorizing them, which I suppose will have to suffice, for how else could we begin to understand each other?

I think our existence is a story, told or not. But, as humans, when are we not talking about our existence, thus making it a story?
