"The emotions are imperious; they cannot be braked or polished into conventional ways of 'beauty' or 'symmetry.' They must explode as felt - in the rawness of palpable, visceral, painful, challenging, scraping, scourching self-discovery. For there to be unity, there must first be a plunge into and through the agony of separateness."

Del comentario de Nat Hentoff a Meditations de John Coltrane.

"I think that the Socratic idea of self-knowledge is replaced among contemporary intellectuals by the Nietzschean idea of self-creation, so that the life of the intellectual is not a matter of finding out what has been inside himself or herself all the time; it's a matter of becoming someone new.

And the same for societies: Social progress is not a matter of discovering the essential nature of the State, or of one's Nation, or of one's society; it's a matter of becoming a more rich and interesting society than in the past."
