Of what is the body made? It is made of emptiness and rhythm. At the ultimate heart of the body, at the heart of the world, there is no solidity. Once again, there is only the dance. At the unimaginable heart of the atom, the compact nucleus, we have found no solid object, but rather a dynamic pattern of tightly confined energy vibrating perhaps 1022 times a second: a dance…
George Leonard (from Wake Up and Laugh!)
We work with the substantial,
but the emptiness is what we use.
Tao Te Ching (via paynehollow)
Vanishing is impossible
Lasting is impossible
Being in two places at once is impossible
Speaking the entire truth is impossible
Instantly knowing Spanish is impossible
Living in the midst of ten thousand panes of glass is impossible
Being simultaneously masked and unmasked is impossible
Except in art
Art is the art of the (im)possible.
Kenneth Koch (via mianoti)
