    This is actually kind of interesting to me. Facebook long ago began depreciating posts that don’t originate from inside Facebook, making sure fewer people see them. If Twitter is now reaching the point where it only wants you to see images that are posted from inside Twitter… well, that’s an interesting corner to turn, isn’t it?

    The function of the imagination is not to make strange things settled, so as much to make settled things strange.

    Tags: Henry De Montherlant, stupidity,   

    Stupidity does not consist in being without ideas. Such stupidity would be the sweet, blissful stupidity of animals, molluscs and the gods. Human Stupidity consists in having lots of ideas, but stupid ones. Stupid ideas, with banners, hymns, loudspeakers and even tanks and flame-throwers as their instruments of persuasion, constitute the refined and the only really terrifying form of Stupidity.

    Many have original minds who do not think it – they are led away by Custom.

    To think is not enough; you must think of something.

    Tags: Harold Rosenberg, , thoughts   

    It is desirable at times for ideas to possess a certain roughness, like drawings on heavy-grain paper. Thoughts having this quality are most likely to match the texture of actual experience.

    Man’s greatest misfortune is that he has no organ, no kind of eyelid or brake, to mask or block a thought, or all thought, when he wants to.

    Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than in the one where they sprang up.
