kéne írni verseket
fotókat -
vagy haikukat amikben gyorsan minden alap nélkül megmondom
megégetem -
vagy hosszan tekergőző jelzőhalmokat amikben elvesztem amit elmondanék
- elégetnék.

lehet hogy csak és kizárólag azt szeretném, hogy egy lány olvassa el
- a fotókat -
és mondja azt hogy jók
- a gondolat - jelek -
de aztán nem tudnám hogy mit kell csinálni abban a helyzetben meg se tudnék szólalni hogy most akkor köszönjem - e meg és menjek - e haza és égessem - e el és ne gondoljak rá többet.

"then finally we wrenched ourselves out of ourselves what is civilization after all
you smear yourself with a glaze of enamel and start shuddering
at the lice
well what are family ties
you eke out your umbilical chord with silk ribbon
well what’s the worship of god
you take on fear to get shot of fear" - Lajos Kassák - The horse dies the birds fly away - translated by Edwin Morgan

"aztán véglegesen kicsavartuk magunkat önmagunkból
mi is az hogy civilizáció
az ember bekeni magát valami zománccal és irtózni
kezd a tetvektől
mi is az hogy családi kapocs
az ember holmi selyemszalaggal meghosszabbitja a köldök-
zsinórját
mi is az hogy istentisztelet
az ember félni kezd hogy ne kelljen félnie" - Kassák Lajos - A ló meghal a madarak kirepülnek (részlet)

If your whole world looked like your favourite paintings or drawings, you’d need a museum with plain white walls and very limited size fragments of that world to command your attention and to start to appreciate it, right?

"Mahavira, the Jain patriarch, surpassed the morality of the Bible with a single sentence: “Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being.” Imagine how different our world might be if the Bible contained this as its central precept." - Sam Harris - Letter To a Christian Nation

"Why always means how, unless you assume there’s some intentionality. That’s the assumption of why, but then you’re assuming the answer before you ask the question." - Lawrence Krauss

"Probably there’s no practical application I can think of to any of the work I do, and that’s fine with me. The point is, people never ask what’s the practical significance of a Mozart symphony or a Picasso painting. It’s part of what makes being human worth being human and the ideas of science are among most beautiful intellectual discoveries humanity’s ever come up with. It doesn’t need anything practical. But, the idea that particles can spontaneously pop into existence is a very important practical aspect of all quantum mechanics, and in fact (…) in certain transistors and semiconductors it’s an integral part of modern technology. So it does have practical applications." - Lawrence Krauss

"To me, the offer of certainty, the offer of complete security, the offer of an impermeable faith, that can’t give way, is an offer of something not worth having. And I urge you to look at those of you that tell you, those people who tell you at your age that you’re dead till you believe as they do - what a terrible thing to be telling to children - and as you can only live by accepting an absolute authority. Don’t think of that as a gift, think of it as a poisoned chalice, push it aside however tempting it is, take the risk of thinking yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty and wisdom will come to you that way." - Christopher Hitchens

"The clear awareness of having been born into a losing struggle need not lead one into despair. I do not especially like the idea that one day I shall be tapped on the shoulder and informed, not that the party is over but that it is most assuredly going on - only henceforth in my absence. Much more horrible, though, would be the announcement that the party was continuing forever, and that I was forbidden to leave. Whether it was a hellishly bad party or a party that was perfectly heavenly in every respect, the moment that it became eternal and compulsory would be the precise moment that it began to pall." - Christopher Hitchens - Hitch-22: A Memoir
