- In our society, art has become something which is only related to objects,and not to individuals, or to life. ... But couldn't everyone's life become a work of art? Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, and not our lives? permalink
- The lyricism of marginality may find inspiration in the image of the "outlaw", the great social nomad, who prowls on the confines of a docile, frightened order. permalink
- The work of an intellectual is not to mould the political will of others; it is, through the analyses that he does in his own field, to re-examine evidence and assumptions, to shake up habitual ways of working and thinking. permalink
