Adam Smith
“All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.”
Adam Smith

Werner Herzog
“People think we had a love-hate relationship. Well, I did not love him, nor did I hate him. We had mutual respect for each other, even as we both planned each other's murder.”
Werner Herzog

Michael Rogin
“Reagan’s easy slippage between movies and reality is synechdochic for a political culture increasingly impervious to distinctions between fiction and history.”
Michael Rogin, Ronald Reagan The Movie: And Other Episodes in Political Demonology

Edgard Varèse
“I do not write experimental music. My experimenting is done before I make the music. Afterwards, it is the listener who must experiment.”
Edgard Varèse

René Daumal
“The cock crowing in the milky dawn thinks its call raises the sun; the child howling in a closed room thinks its cries open the door. But the sun and the mother go their own way, following the laws of their beings. Those who see us, even though we cannot see ourselves, opened the door for us, answering our puerile calculations, our unsteady desires, and our awkward efforts with a generous welcome.”
René Daumal, Mount Analogue
