“A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket.” Charles Péguy

“Writing, Phaedrus, has this strange power, quite like painting in fact; for the creatures in paintings stand there like living beings, yet if you ask them anything they maintain a solemn silence. It is the same with written words. You might imagine they speak as if they were actually thinking something but if you want to find out about what they are saying and question them, they keep on giving the one same message eternally.” Plato, from Phaedrus

"My door was always open to mystery then, but mystery came in, closing it behind her, and ever since I have heard, without a word being spoken, an immense trampling of feet, that of the crowd of naked women laying siege to my keyhole.  The profusion of their Louis XV heels makes a sound comparable to that of logs burning in the hearth, to fields of ripe corn, to clocks in deserted rooms at night, to a strange breathing on the same pillow next to your face.”
—Robert Desnos, from Liberty or Love!

“The problem is no longer getting people to express themselves, but providing little gaps of solitude and silence in which they might eventually find something to say. Repressive forces don’t stop people from expressing themselves, but rather, force them to express themselves. What a relief to have nothing to say, the right to say nothing, because only then is there a chance of framing the rare, or ever rarer, the thing that might be worth saying.” Gilles Deleuze, “Mediators”
