Satire must not be a kind of superfluous ill will, but ill will from a higher point of view. Ridiculous man, divine God. Or else, hatred against the bogged-down vileness of average man as against the possible heights that humanity might attain.More Paull Klee [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

One eye sees, the other feels.More Paull Klee [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
