WILLIAM HEINESEN on “the absolute” as quoted by W. Glyn Jones
If existence has taught me anything, it has taught me to avoid the absolute. A paradoxical dualism is characteristic of life in its minor manifestations as it is in its major ones. We are left to lurch around in a world in which everything constantly finds itself in various stages of transition and conflict. Nothing is absolute. Not even death. Death merely destroys the ego, but that ego is only a component, a single fraction of a greater human whole.
