Beyond Questioning

Beyond Questioning
A person who eats meat
wants to get his teeth into something
A person who does not eat meat
wants to get his teeth into something else
If these thoughts interest you for even a moment
you are lost

- Leonard Cohen

I'll come no more behind your scenes,
David; for the silk stockings and white
bosoms of your actresses excite my
amorous propensities

- Boswell (re: David Garrick)

The text is a fetish object, and this fetish desires me. The text chooses me, by a whole disposition of invisible screens, selective baffles, vocabulary, references, readability, etc.; and, lost in the midst of the text (not behind it, like deus ex machina) there is always the other, the author.

-Roland Barthes

I never question why the beauty and scent of a Rose makes me feel good.

Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire.

Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own.
