“The future of philosophy is in struggle.”
“It is a matter of struggling against what, in capitalism, constitutes a deathly, regressive tendency to negate its limit.”

– Stiegler, Magic Skin


“Annoyance is a physical illness that is by no means ended simply by eliminating the cause of the annoyance.”

– Nietzsche, Man Alone With Himself

“Why is it so important what – others have done? Why does it become sacred by the mere fact of not being your own? Why is anyone and everyone right – so long it’s not yourself? Why does the number of those others take the place of truth? Why is truth made a mere matter of arithmetic – and only addition at that! Why is everything twisted out of all sense to fit everything else? There must be some reason. I don’t know. I’ve never known it. I’d like to understand.”

Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

“My dear fellow, who will let you?
That is not the point. The point is, who will stop me.”

Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Emmanuel Levinas, On Escape

“Nothing can be reasonable or beautiful unless it’s made by one central idea, and the idea sets every detail.”

Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

I took this photo of the inside of a loo door in a weird Melville bar in Jo’burg last week.

“Men hate passion, any great passion.”

Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead
