Erik Pevernagie
“A piece of art comes to life, when we can feel, it is breathing, when it talks to us and starts raising questions. It may dispel biased perceptions; make us recognize ignored fragments and remember forsaken episodes of our life story. Art may sometimes even be nasty and disturbing, if we don’t want to consent to its philosophy or concept, but it might, in the end, perhaps reconcile us with ourselves. ("When is Art?")”
Erik Pevernagie

Coleman Dowell
“All there is, is fragments, because a man, even the loneliest of the species, is divided among several persons, animals, worlds. To know a man more than slightly it would be necessary to gather him together from all those quarters, each last scrap of him, and this done after he is safely dead.”
Coleman Dowell, Island People

Roland Barthes
“(Sartre) (The world is full without me, as in Nausea; the world plays at living behind a glass partition; the world is in an aquarium; I see everything close up and yet cut off, made of some other substance; I keep falling outside myself, without dizziness, without blue, into precision.”
Roland Barthes

“So much of life is invisible, inscrutable: layers of thoughts, feelings, outward events entwined with secrecies, ambiguities, ambivalences, obscurities, darknesses strongly present even to the one who's lived it- maybe especially to the one who's lived it. I didn't seek to find her, wandered instead within and among her fragments of language-notebooks, drafts, journals, fictions, letters, essays, and found there whole worlds like spinning planets, lived in their cold light and burning light, wondering where I was, where they might take me. Curious, I heard a monster's voice and followed-”
Laurie Sheck, A Monster's Notes

Ruth Ellen Kocher
“I'm not sure how you do this
to me. I barely remember you whole,
just the hair or beard,
the legs, arms, all separate,
never as one man who searched
desperately in the dark
for music without words
to make love to.”
Ruth Ellen Kocher, When the Moon Knows You're Wandering

M.R. Field
“Walking into my room, I turned and caught his gaze, “But you’re good at walking away, so you obviously haven’t changed.” Pointing to my chin, I indicated, “Except this,” meaning his goatee, “this is new, but you being an asshole, yep- still there. Oh well.” I took a step back and flicked the door, slamming it. -Trice”
M.R. Field, Fragments

Lars Gustafsson
“Hur många fragment av onödiga kunskaper finns det egentligen i en människa som har nått femtionio år? Och kanske är de inte alldeles onödiga? Kanske är det av fragmenten som man i grund och botten består? Passioner, känslor, längtan, ja till och med hat kommer och går. Det är fragmenten som blir kvar och som lever sitt myllrande liv, ungefär som myrorna i myrstacken. Valmiki, den store hinduiske asketen och mystikern, satt stilla så länge att myrorna byggde en stack kring honom. "Valmiki" betyder, som alla förstår, "myrstack" på sanskrit.”
Lars Gustafsson, La clandestina

Lars Gustafsson
“Att språngvis och på ett fullständigt oförutsägbart sätt kasta sig från den ena meningslösa kunskapen till den andra. Ur tanke i tanke. Det var av sådana mängder av näst intill oanvändbara tankar, av ett sammelsurium av fullständigt meningslösa kunskaper som en människa bestod. Kanske var det av sådana fragment som verkligheten bestod? I politiska kampanjer i televisionen brukade man kalla det för sound bites. De korta effektiva raderna som lyste till, som för ett ögonblick fångade det sällsyntaste och värdefullaste som fanns: de andra människornas fulla uppmärksamhet. Det mänskliga medvetandet var i själva verket inte alls så olikt televisionen. Hade det inte, precis som televisionen, en massa kanaler som man hela tiden hoppade mellan? Och bestod det inte av en ständig, aldrig riktigt vilande ström av fragment, ibland som de där meningslösa kunskaperna, ibland som ett plötsligt smärtsamt barndomsminne, ibland bara en smygande ängslan. Och på ett och annat ställe i denna ström kunde det blänka till. En snabb liten fisk. En sound bite.”
Lars Gustafsson, La clandestina

Anne Sexton
“You care and its all over the place.”
Anne Sexton, Anne Sexton: A Self-Portrait in Letters

Ahmed Salah Al-Mahdi
“The past is like a broken mirror— you don’t remember but fleeting glimpses of it, sparse moments over many years, all combined in that distorted and fragmented picture. Whenever you try to gather the fragments of the past, it hurts your soul, just as shards of broken glass hurt your fingertips while trying to collect them from the ground.”
Ahmed Salah Al-Mahdi
