Sabato: Borges, what do you think about God?
Borges: I think He is the greatest invention of fantasy literature.
Sabato: But tell me, if you think God is an invention, why do you write so many theological stories?
Borges: Because I think theology, as fantasy literature, is the perfection of the genre.

"Symptoms … are always construed by the patient as obstacles; so it is always worth wondering what the patient’s imaginary unobstructed life would look like."

"I am alone in the midst of these happy, reasonable voices. All these creatures spend their time explaining, realizing happily that they agree with each other. In Heaven’s name, why is it so important to think the same things all together."

"

Consciousness observes and is appeased.
The soul scrambles across the screes.
The soul,

like the square root of minus 1,
is an impossibility that has its uses.

"

"Writing is inhibiting. Sighing, I sit, scribbling in ink this pidgin script. I sing with nihilistic witticism, disciplining signs with trifling gimmicks - impish hijinks which highlight stick sigils. Isn’t it glib? Isn’t it chic? I fit childish insights within rigid limits, writing shtick which might instill priggish misgivings in critics blind with hindsight."

"Even though I’m world-famous and widely written about, and people are immensely nice to me, the only thing that meant anything to me when I was working was the work. The work had to be meaningful to those who were carrying it out, and it had to be alive. That’s the only thing I was afraid of—God knows, I was dead scared of it—that my ability to make things come alive and be effective would be taken away from me or that I might lose it, that suddenly I wouldn’t know how to do it, or perhaps worse, that I would be left with people doing what I said only out of politeness. You know, I never had so many nightmares during my life, but I did have one recurring bad dream: of myself, doing things that were stone-cold dead. The idea that I could no longer put any life into what I was doing—that was what terrorized me.”
-Ingmar Bergman, in a conversation
