Gao Xingjian

Gao Xingjian

Chinese novelist, short story writer, playwright and critic. Nobel Prize for Literature in 2000
The enterprise of describing something in language that has never been described before is a very difficult thing to do. When you decide to do away with old cliches or old phraseologies, and to come up with a new way of saying something, it's extremely difficult.More Gao Xingjian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are numerous layers to truth, and the simple and superficial statement of facts cannot satisfy the writer.More Gao Xingjian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The sand murmurs that it wants to swallow everything.More Gao Xingjian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Language is inherently not concerned with logic. As an expression of the psychological activities of humankind, it simply follows a linear process as it seeks actualisation. Moreover, it does not obey the objective concepts of time and space that belong to the physical world. When the discussion of time and space is imported into linguistic art from scientific aims and research methods, that linguistic art is entirely reduced to trifling pseudo-philosophical issues.More Gao Xingjian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you want to do anything, do it now, without compromise or concession, because you have only one life.More Gao Xingjian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
