Stevie Wonder

The world is divided into two categories: failures and unknowns.
Dada talks with you, it is everything, it includes everything, it belongs to all religions, can be neither victory nor defeat, it lives in space and not in time.

Dada is like your hopes: nothing like your paradise: nothing like your idols: nothing like your heroes: nothing like your artists: nothing like your religions: nothing.

Vladimir Mayakovsky by Alexander Rodchenko

We are not responsible for what we do; we are ignorant of our acts until we accomplish them.

One must go through life, be it red or blue, stark naked and accompanied by the music of a subtle fisherman, prepared at all times for a celebration.
Nature is unfair? So much the better, inequality is the only bearable thing, the monotony of equality can only lead us to boredom.

You are always looking for already-felt emotions, just as you like to get an old pair of trousers back from the cleaners, which seem new when you don't look too closely. Artists are cleaners, don't let yourself be taken in by them. True modern works of art are made not by artists but quite simply by men.
