Blaise Pascal - 19 Ιουνίου 1623

The world is satisfied with words. Few appreciate the things beneath.
Le monde se paye de paroles; peu approfondissement les choses.

Blaise Pascal, Lettres Provinciales

Δύο αποσπάσματα από τον άνθρωπο που ήξερε καλά τις λέξεις, τον Samuel Beckett.

She felt, as she felt so often with Murphy, spattered with words that went dead as soon as they sounded; each word obliterated, before it had time to make sense, by the word that came next; so that in the end she did not know what had been said. It was like difficult music heard for the first time.
-Από το Murphy

...you would do better, at least no worse, to obliterate texts than to blacken margins, to fill in the holes of words till all is black and flat and the whole ghastly business looks like what it is, senseless, speechless, issueless misery.
-Από το Molloy

Τον οποίο φιλοξενούσες πρόσφατα στο μπλογκ σου:)
Και από μια χώρα που μάς χάρισε πολλούς αγαπημένους συγγραφείς.

Πάντως το πρώτο απόσπασμα μού θύμισε το τραγούδι

"..You were so good with words
And at keeping things vague"


Encore des mots toujours des mots
les mêmes mots
