"The temporality of life is the thing we have to forget. It is the one mistake in creation, that we have to die. I don't know why it wasn't done a little better. But then, it wasn't. So the best thing is not to give it credence. Don't accept it. Don't accept it. If you tailor all your actions and your words to that non-acceptance, it will be as if it doesn't exist."
— from Ann Gibson, "Dorothea Tanning: The Impassioned Double Entendre," Arts Magazine 58, no. 1 (September 1983), p. 103.
