Kōbō Abe
“Still, the one who best understands the significance of light is not the electrician, not the painter, not the photographer, but the man who lost his sight in adulthood. There must be the wisdom of deficiency in deficiency, just as there is the wisdom of plenty in plenty.”
Kōbō Abe, The Face of Another

Stanley Crawford
“Often he vanished for days down the spiral staircase into the engine-room to overhaul the weary machinery, leaving me with a curt note tacked to his then-favourite aspen, the Aspen Laura-Anne, a white-limbed thing with noisy leaves: 'A due-south drift, please, love, for a day or two, n'est-ce pas?”
Stanley Crawford, Log of the S.S. the Mrs. Unguentine

William H. Gass
“The true alchemists do not change lead into gold; they change the world into words.”
William H. Gass, A Temple of Texts

“Rocks in my path? I keep them all. With them I shall build my castle.”
Nemo Nox

Fernando Pessoa
“In this metallic age of barbarians, only a relentless cultivation of our ability to dream, to analyse and to captivate can prevent our personality from degenerating into nothing or else into a personality like all the rest.”
Fernando Pessoa
