“Longing is the agony of the nearness of the distant.”
— Martin Heidegger, Who is Nietzsche’s Zarathustra
"As Cocteau writes: 'Decorative style has never existed. Style is the soul, and unfortunately with us the soul assumes the form of the body.' Even if one were to define style as the manner of our appearing, this by no means necessarily entails an opposition between a style that one assumes and one’s 'true' being. In fact, such a disjunction is extremely rare. In almost every case, our manner of appearing is our manner of being. The mask is the face."
"Time exists in order that everything doesn’t happen all at once … and space exists so that it doesn’t all happen to you."
