Giorgio Agamben
“One day humanity will play with law just as children play with disused objects, not in order to restore them to their canonical use but to free them from it for good.”
Giorgio Agamben, State of Exception

Guy Debord
“Young people everywhere have been allowed to choose between love and a garbage disposal unit. Everywhere they have chosen the garbage disposal unit.”
Guy Debord

André Breton
“There is no use being alive if one must work. The event from which each of us is entitled to expect the revelation of his own life’s meaning - that event which I may not yet have found, but on whose path I seek myself - is not earned by work.”
André Breton

Robert Walser
“I wanted to speak with someone, but found no time; sought some fixed point, but found none. In the midst of the unrelenting forward thrust I felt the wish to stand still. The muchness and the motion were too much and too fast. Everyone withdrew from everyone. There was a running, as of something liquefied, a constant going forth, as of evaporation. Everything was schematic, ghostlike, even myself.”
Robert Walser

Friedrich Nietzsche
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
