"In the beginning was the Flaw. The Flaw divided light from dark, male from female, species from species, individual from individual, peculiarity from peculiarity.The Flaw multiplied and begat more flaws; differences multiplied and begat more differences.
The Flaw mutated endlessly and proliferated throughout the World, until the World was filled with flaws, an infinite, unhierarchical number of irreducible differences. And from the Flaw was Photography born, whose destiny it was to divide black from gray from white , to replicate difference(s), and to reproduce the Flaw."

"At any time, each of the moments of which life consists is dying, and that moment will never recur, and yet is not this transitoriness a reminder that challenges us to make the best possible use of each moment of our lives. It certainly is, and hence my imperative: live as if you are living for the second time and had acted as wrongly the first time as you are about to act now. In fact, the opportunities to act properly— the potentialities to fulfill a meaning are affected by the irreversibility of our lives, but also the potentialities alone are so affected, or as soon as we have used an opportunity of actualized the potential meaning, we have done so once and for all. We have rescued it into the past where in it it has been safely delivered and deposited. In the past, nothing is irretrievably lost. Rather on the contrary, everything is irrevocably stored and treasured. To be sure, people tend to see only the stubble fields of transitoriness, overlook and forget the full granaries of the past, into which they have brought the harvest of their lives. The deeds done, the loves loved, and last but not least, the sufferings they have gone through with courage and dignity. From this one may see that there is no reason to pity old people. Instead, young people should envy them. It is true that the old have no opportunities, no possibilities, in the future, but they have more than that. Instead of possibilities in the future, they have realities in the past, the potentialities they have actualized, the meanings they have fulfilled, and the values they have realized, and nothing and nobody can ever remove these assets from the past. In view of the possibility of finding meaning in suffering, life’s meaning is an unconditional one, at least potentially."
