I feel that there is much to be said for the Celtic belief that the souls of those whom we have lost are held captive in some inferior being, in an animal, in a plant, in some inanimate object, and thus effectively lost to us until the day (which to many never comes) when we happen to pass by the tree or to obtain possession of the object which forms their prison. Then they start and tremble, they call us by our name, and as soon as we have recognised their voice the spell is broken. Delivered by us, they have overcome death and return to share our life.

THE LAWS OF SCULPTORS
Gilbert & George
1. Always be smartly dressed, well groomed relaxed friendly polite and in complete control.
2. Make the world to believe in you and to pay heavily for this privilege.
3. Never worry assess discuss or criticise but remain quiet respectful and calm.
4. The lord chisels still, so don’t leave your bench for long.
MAX BOINET pour Elsa Schiaparelli « Le Cirque » (1938)
“I decided that I would choose three powerful words, words of strong protection, and so long as these great words were never spoken aloud no change would come. I wrote the first word—melody—in the apricot jam on my toast with the handle of a spoon and then put the toast in my mouth and ate it very quickly. I was one-third safe.”
Mary Katherine “Merricat” Blackwood

"It’s not about winning, Roger.
It’s about attitude.
Win or lose, you gotta do ‘em both with grace.”
Nick Nolte in The Good Thief
Melancholia - by Lars von Trier
yo amo los mundos sutiles,
ingrávidos y gentiles
como pompas de jabòn.
