Quote of the day: Hans Arp

"When a new mode of imagining erupts into literature, it dislocates the rhetoric of its time, and is of subtler stuff than that rhetoric—'the infinite arrives barefoot on this earth." --Hans Arp

Great quote. Since we become fixated and oriented by recent rhetoric, we often can't even bring"new modes" into focus, and may scrunch our noses at the barefoot anomalies. As Albert said,"Great spirits often encounter violent opposition from mediocre minds."
