    « Je ne crois plus au vieil inventaire des figures dans la forme desquelles on veut confiner le monde. […] Je ne veux plus de rien qui puisse porter un nom, je veux me libérer de la vieille nomenclature dont on voulait me faire croire qu’elle répertoriait la réalité. »

    “I don’t believe into the old inventory of figures in the shape of which we confine the world. […] I do not want anything that can be named, I want to free myself from the old nomenclature that was said to me that she listed the reality.”
