Jul 25

R
The profoundest thoughts of the philosophers have something tricklike about them. A lot disappears in order for something to suddenly appear in the palm of the hand.
A
It doesn't matter how new an idea is: what matters is how new it becomes.
N
The process of writing has something infinite about it. Even though it is interrupted each night, it is one single notation.
