My mind is my shelter


Certainty, as a valuable delusion


“Attempt what is not certain. Certainty may or may not come later. It may then be a valuable delusion”

“The pretty, initial position, which falls short of completeness, is not to be valued, except as a stimulus for further moves.”

“Use and respond to the initial fresh qualities, but consider them absolutely expendable”

“Somehow don’t be bored, but if you must, use it in action. Use its destructive potential”

“Mistakes can’t be erased, but they move you from the present position”

“Don’t ‘discover’ a subject – of any kind”
