“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition.”
“Who but the artist has the power to open man up, to set free the imagination? The others - priest, teacher, saint, statesman, warrior - hold us to the path of history. They keep us chained to the rock, that the vultures may eat out our hearts. It is the artist who haheros the courage to go against the crowd; he is the unrecognized "hero of our time" - and of all time.”
What is an artist? He's a man who has antennae, who knows how to hook up to the currents which are in atmosphere, in the cosmos.
“I'm delirious because I'm dying so fast.”
