Book cover for The Rings of Saturn
What we perceive are no more than isolated lights in the abyss of ignorance, in the shadow-filled edifice of the world.

Walter Benjamin
“The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the “emergency situation” in which we live is the rule. We must arrive at a concept of history which corresponds to this. Then it will become clear that the task before us is the introduction of a real state of emergency; and our position in the struggle against Fascism will thereby improve. Not the least reason that the latter has a chance is that its opponents, in the name of progress, greet it as a historical norm. – The astonishment that the things we are experiencing in the 20th century are “still” possible is by no means philosophical. It is not the beginning of knowledge, unless it would be the knowledge that the conception of history on which it rests is untenable.”
Walter Benjamin

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“Don't think, but look! (PI 66)”
Ludwig Wittgenstein

Mervyn Peake
“I sometimes think about old tombs and weeds
That interwreathe among the bones of kings
With cold and poisonous berry and black flower:
Or ruminate upon the skulls of steeds
Frailer than shells and on those luminous wings -
The shoulder blades of Princes of fled power,
Which now the unrecorded sandstorms grind
Into so wraith-like a translucency
Of tissue-thin and aqueous bone

- A Reverie of Bone
Mervyn Peake, Shapes And Sounds

Anaïs Nin
“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
Anais Nin

Confucius
“I am not concerned that I am not known; I seek to be worthy to be known.”
Confucius
