"For each person there is a sentence—a series of words—which has the power to destroy him"

at the center of the exhibition space stands a young woman, wearing a simple skin-colored dress; hundreds of strips made of similar fabric are suspended from various points on the four walls surrounding her. some trail on the floor, reaching her feet, others look as though they are already, somehow, connected to her dress. she bends, picks up a strip of fabric from the floor, sews it onto her dress, and so on and so forth. strip after strip, hour in hour out, in a cyclical, sequential act, until no more fabric strips remain on the floor, and she appears inseparably connected to the walls of the exhibition space.

I should have spent less time thinking about post-rock records and more time learning how to play sports
"Do not disturb yourself by picturing your life as a whole; do not assemble in your mind the many and varied troubles which have come to you in the past and will come again in the future, but ask yourself with regard to every present difficulty: ‘What is there in this that is unbearable and beyond endurance?’ You would be ashamed to confess it! And then remind yourself that it is not the future or what has passed that afflicts you, but always the present, and the power of this is much diminished if you take it in isolation and call your mind to task if it thinks that it cannot stand up to it when taken on its own."
