ISSUE 10 Autumn 1999

 

As long as our civilization is essentially one of property, of fences, or exclusiveness, it will be mocked by delusions. Our riches will leave us sick; there will be bitterness in our laughter, and our wine will burn our mouth. Only that good profits which we can taste with all doors open, and which serves all men.

 

Emerson.

The intelligence is defeated as soon as the expression of one's thoughts is preceded explicitly or implicitly by the little word we. And when the light of the intelligence grows dim it is not very long before the love of good becomes lost.

Fortunate the age and fortunate the times in which my famous deeds shall come to light, deeds worthy to be engraved in bronze, caved in marble and painted on wood, as memorial for posterity.

The literary market does not tolerate the old-fashioned idea of a work of art as a unique, unrepeatable, deeply individual artistic act. In the literary industry, writers are obedient workers, just a link in the chain of production.

Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or a mere sense of duty; it comes rather from love and devotion towards humanity and towards objective things.

There ought to be someone with a little hammer outside the door of every contented, happy person, constantly tapping away to remind him that there are unhappy people in the world, and that however happy he may be, sooner or later life will show its claws; misfortune will strike Ė illness, poverty, loss.           Chekhov
