"Chapter 2: Commodity owners do not see each other as anything but commodities; men are always separate from their objects, but own objects as commodities and exchange them as individuals; the money form attaches itself either to exchange from the outside or object of utility, i.e. alienable indigenous wealth; money-commodity's U-V (use-value) is double, i.e. special U-V as a commodity and formal U-V in the social."

"Exergue:
Derrida lays bare 'grammatology', which is in need of an exergue itself. Ironic considering it appears in the exergue, because of Derrida's view of Hegel's preface.

End of the Book and the Beginning of Writing:
Logocentrism is reaching exhaustion; voice is at the centre of being; signs are determined by a genealogy in which truth is not present to them; deconstruction fails due to old structure."

Chinua Achebe
“My weapon is literature

Chinua Achebe

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Deception, flattering, lying, deluding, talking behind the back, putting up a false front, living in borrowed splendor, wearing a mask, hiding behind convention, playing a role for others and for oneself – in short, a continuous fluttering around the solitary flame of vanity – is so much the rule and the law among men that there is almost nothing which is less comprehensible than how an honest and pure drive for truth could have arisen among them.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense

Gilles Deleuze
“A concept is a brick. It can be used to build a courthouse of reason. Or it can be thrown through the window.”
Gilles Deleuze, A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia

Blaise Pascal
“Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness.”
Blaise Pascal, Pensées

“The Marx-Freud parallelism between the two remains utterly sterile and insignificant as long as it is expressed in terms that make them introjections and projections of each other without ceasing to be utterly alien to each other, as in the famous equation money = shit.”
Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari
