BORN TO DIE, PT. 3B | EASTER 2014

“…there is for Art but one law – the exigencies and the good of the work.”

                     – Jacques Maritain, “Art and Scholasticism”

“Articulating the living upon the nonliving in general, origin of all repetition, origin of ideality, the trace is not more ideal than real, not more intelligible than sensible, not more a transparent signification than an opaque energy and no concept of metaphysics can describe it.

                    – Jacques Derrida, Of Grammatology

But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name.  Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flash, nor of the will of man, but of God.  And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

                    – John 1:12-14

“Every heading met with in a study of ‘creation,’ every nuance of analytic and figural discourse, can be related to arguments on the transubstantiation of remembered flesh and blood into the bread and wine of the sacrament.” 

                    – George Steiner, Grammars of Creation

“But Jesus is like a girl.  He doesn’t have to do anything.  You love him ’cause he’s beautiful.”

                    – Chris Kraus, I Love Dick

“We had nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore, except to make our lives a work of art.”

                    – Lana Del Rey, “Ride”
