La dispersion est, dit-on, l'ennemi des choses bien faites. Et quoi ? Dans ce monde de la spécialisation extrême, de l'utilitaire et du mesurable à outrance y aurait-il quelque mal à se perdre dans les labyrinthes de l'esprit dilettante ?

A la vérité, rien n’est plus savoureux que de muser parmi les sables du farniente, sans autre esprit que la propension au butinage, la légèreté sans objet prédéterminé.

Broutilles essentielles. Ratages propices aux heures languides...

Caspar David Friedrich

« We visited Friedrich's atelier today. Listening to him and seeing his paintings was wonderful. He has some bonhomie which pleases people and his paintings reveal his romantic imagination. As a rule, he expresses in them one thought or feeling, though vaguely. You may meditate over his paintings but not have a clear understanding of them, for they are vague even in his soul. They are dreams or daydreams. He often employs very simple natural things, such as an ice block floating on sea waves, a few trees in a dale, window of his room (facing the beautiful Elbe), knight meditating over ruins or tombstones, monk staring into the distance or below his feet: all this captivates your soul, plunges you into dreams, all invokes your imagination, powerfully though vaguely »

« I am not so weak as to submit to the demands of the age when they go against my convictions. I spin a cocoon around myself; let others do the same. I shall leave it to time to show what will come of it: a brilliant butterfly or maggot. »
