"I never wanted to be well-rounded, and I do not admire well-rounded people nor their work. So far as I can see, nothing good in the world has ever been done by well-rounded people. The good work is done by people with jagged, broken edges, because those edges cut things and leave an imprint, a design."
"I discovered in love, through the very mechanism of love, what the absence of love had prevented me from perceiving. For me, the metaphysical spirit was reborn from love. Love was its source, and I hope never to leave this enchanted forest."
Louis Aragon, The Paris Peasant (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
