Although none of the rules for becoming more alive is valid, it is healthy to keep on formulating them. - Susan Sontag


Hell is out of fashion - institutional hells at any rate. The populated infernos of Twentieth Century are more private affairs, the gaps between the bars are the sutures of one's own skull. A valid hell is one from which there is a possibility of redemption, even if this is never achieved, the dungeons of an architecture of grace whose spires point to some kind of heaven. The institutional hells of the present century are reached with one-way tickets, marked Nagasaki and Buchenwald, worlds of terminal horror even more final than the grave. - James Graham Ballard


Written poetry is worth reading once, and then should be destroyed. Let the dead poets make way for others. Then we might even come to see that it is our veneration for what has already been created, however beautiful and valid it may be, that petrifies us. - Antonin Artaud


A new and valid idea is worth more than a regiment and fewer men can furnish the former than command the latter. - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
