13. "I am an eye. A mechanical eye. I, the machine, show you a world the way only I can see it. I free myself for today and forever from human immobility. I'm in constant movement. I approach and pull away from objects. I creep under them. I move alongside a running horse's mouth. I fall and rise with the falling and rising bodies. This is I, the machine, manoeuvring in the chaotic movements, recording one moment after another in the most complex combinations.Freed from the boundaries of time and space. I co-ordinate any and all points of the universe, wherever I want them to be. My way leads towards the creation of a fresh perception of the world. Thus I explain in a new way the world unknown to you. - Dziga Vertov 1923"

22. "Odd, the words: ‘while away the time'.How to hold it fast the harder thing.Who is not fearful: where is there a staying,where in all this is there any being?Look, as the day slows towards the spacethat draws it into dusk: rising becameupstanding, standing a laying down, and thenthat which accepts its lying blurs to darkness.Mountains rest, outgloried be the stars -but even there, time's transition glimmers.Ah, nightly refuged in my wild heart,roofless, the imperishable lingers.---Wunderliches Wort: die Zeit vertreiben!Sie zu halten, wäre das Problem.Denn, wen ängstigts nicht: wo ist ein Bleiben,wo ein endlich Sein in alledem? -Sieh, der Tag verlangsamt sich, entgegenjenem Raum, der ihn nach Abend nimmt:Aufstehn wurde Stehn, und Stehn wird Legen,und das willig Liegende verschwimmt -Berge ruhn, von Sternen überprächtigt; -aber auch in ihnen flimmert Zeit.Ach, in meinem wilden Herzen nächtigtobdachlos die Unvergänglichkeit."

That man who had been sent to Jurgis' father by the boss, he would rise; the man who told tales and spied upon his fellows would rise; but the man who minded his own business and did his work—why, they would "speed him up" till they had worn him out, and then they would throw him into the gutter."

27. "The eye of a man should be still more reverent before the rising of a young maiden than before the rising of a star. The possibility of touch should increase respect. The down of the peach, the dust of the plum, the radiated crystal of snow, the butterfly's wing powdered with feathers, are gross things beside that chastity that does not even know it is chaste. The young maiden is only the glimmer of a dream and is not yet statue. Her alcove is hidden in the shadows of the ideal. The indiscreet touch of the eye desecrates this dim penumbra. Here, to gaze, is to profane."
Author: Victor Hugo
