Mimesis and Violence


About

Yes, I have a thousand tongues,
And nine and ninety-nine lie.
Though I strive to use the one,
It will make no melody at my will,
But is dead in my mouth.

Stephen Crane

The other terror that scares us from self-trust is our consistency; a reverence for our past act or word, because the eyes of others have no other data for computing our orbit than our past acts, and we are loath to disappoint them.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is characteristic of all deep human problems that they are not to be approached without some humor and some bewilderment.

Freeman Dyson

Striving to be orbitless, bewildered, and humorous with the one dry tongue.
