"Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshiping."
Irmin Schmidt - Flavia Theme
"Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed."
"I was reading a book about pleasure,
how you have to glide through it
like an arrow
passing through a target,
coming out the other side and going on."
— Tony Hoagland, from “What Narcissism Means to Me,” in Impossible Dream

"Stories, like people and butterflies and songbirds’ eggs and human hearts and dreams, are also fragile things, made up of nothing stronger or more lasting than twenty-six letters and a handful of punctuation marks. Or they are words on the air, composed of sounds and ideas-abstract, invisible, gone once they’ve been spoken-and what could be more frail than that? But some stories, small, simple ones about setting out on adventures or people doing wonders, tales of miracles and monsters, have outlasted all the people who told them, and some of them have outlasted the lands in which they were created."
