Gunther Grass

Art is uncompromising and life is full of compromises.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Melancholy has ceased to be an individual phenomenon, an exception. It has become the class privilege of the wage earner, a mass state of mind that finds its cause wherever life is governed by production quotas.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We already have the statistics for the future: the growth percentages of pollution, overpopulation, desertification. The future is already in place.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Information networks straddle the world. Nothing remains concealed. But the sheer volume of information dissolves the information. We are unable to take it all in.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If work and leisure are soon to be subordinated to this one utopian principle -- absolute busyness -- then utopia and melancholy will come to coincide: an age without conflict will dawn, perpetually busy -- and without consciousness.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The human head is bigger than the globe. It conceives itself as containing more. It can think and rethink itself and ourselves from any desired point outside the gravitational pull of the earth. It starts by writing one thing and later reads itself as something else. The human head is monstrous.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Believing: it means believing in our own lies. And I can say that I am grateful that I got this lesson very early.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I shall speak of how melancholy and utopia preclude one another. How they fertilize one another... of the revulsion that follows one insight and precedes the next... of superabundance and surfeit. Of stasis in progress. And of myself, for whom melancholy and utopia are heads and tails of the same coin.More Gunther Grass [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We already have the statistics for the future: the growth percentages of pollution, overpopulation, desertification. The future is already in place.More Gunther Grass [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
