"The point where I decided I just didn't care about that [academic] job any more was when I stopped turning off the sound on my computer games during office hours. There'd be some student waiting outside for feedback on his assignment and I was like, 'Wait, just let me finished killing this dwarf and I'll get back to you'"

---name withheld (quoted in The Utopia of Rules)




"Ultimately the most basic task of philosophy is to impede stupidity"

---Delueze



"When joy is dispelled it means somewhere you have erred. Find the error and correct it...Be like children--rejoice forever."

---Tolstoy



Imagine Anselm Kiefer working the canvas.



"We will call, if you like, “philosophy” the form of thought that asks, not of course what is true or false, but what determines that there is and can be truth and falsehood and whether or not we can separate the true and the false. We will call “philosophy” the form of thought that asks what it is that enables the subject to have access to the truth and which attempts to determine the conditions and limits of the subject’s access to the truth. If we call this “philosophy”, then I think we would call “spiritually” the search, practice, and experience through which the subject carries out the necessary transformations on himself in order to have access to the truth. We will call “spirituality” then the set of researches, practices, and experiences, which may be purifications, ascetic exercises, renunciations, conversions of looking, modifications of existence, etc., which are, not for knowledge but for the subject, for the subject’s very being, the price to be paid for access to the truth."

---Foucault



"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less."

"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."

"The question is", said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master, that is all."



It seems to me that the entire art of love comes down to saying exactly what the current moments degree of intoxication requires; in other words, it is all about listening to your heart. Of course, that is easier said than done.

---Stendhal



"Please tame me!" he said.

"I want to very much," the little prince replied. "But I have not much time. I have friends to discover and a great many things to understand."

"One only understands the things that one tames," said the fox. "Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shops. But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship so men have no friends anymore. If you want a friend, tame me."

"What must I do, to tame you?" asked the little prince.

"You must be very patient," replied the fox. "First you will sit down at a little distance from me - like that - in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings. But day by day, you will be able to sit a little closer..."

---Antoine de Saint-Exupery



"In reading, one should fondle and notice details. There is nothing wrong about the moonshine of generalization when it comes after the sunny trifles of the book have been collected. If one begins with a ready-made generalization, one begins at the wrong end and travels away from the book before one has started to understand. Nothing is more boring or more unfair to the author than starting to read, say, Madame Bovary, with the preconceived notion that it is a denunciation of the bourgeoisie."

---Nabokov
