Those For Whom Every Everywhere Is An Elsewhere

David Salle - Old Bottles, 1995

I think a true intellectual is never at home. To me, being an intellectual means seeing things in a complicated way. One lives on the boundary, one is aware of many claims, many alternatives, and that precludes being at home. I accept being uncomfortable. I also don't know how else to be.
