Thought is impossible without word

A friend of mine asked why there are so many words in 'English'. He was  irritated looking at the book, Word power made easy.

Being a logophile, I stared at him and said, "I'm not feeling good by your words and by listening to what you have said."

"Whatever", he said.

"Instead of the whole sentence, I can use the word, 'irritated'. The more vocabulary you have, the more  diverse are your expressions."

He was convinced.

After having the conversation, I don't know if he had learned anything out of it, I started pondering about the words, expressions, and thoughts.

Suddenly I was struck by Vivekananda's words. It was about Microcosmos and Macrocosmos. I quote the line, 
"Thought is impossible without words."
