quote of the day

“It is an error to divide people into the living and the dead: there are people who

are dead-alive, and people who are alive-alive.

The dead-alive also write, walk, speak, act. But they make no mistakes;

only machines make no mistakes, and they produce only dead things.

The alive-alive are constantly in error, in search, in questions, in torment.”
