"Nothing will be revealed except the absence of revelation, the absence of God’s plan, and the omnipresence of chaos and contingency."

"The avoidance of misery and

one who must picture humanity
upside down and singing"
     --Frank O'Hara

The New Gnosticism. More.

"But Nile no more confines them now: What bound
Can for insatiate avarice be found!
Freighted with Libyan deaths our merchants come,
And poisonous asps are things of price at Rome."
     --Rowe's Lucan IX (1196-1199)
