M. Kundera – Slowness

our period is obsessed by the desire to forget, and
it is to fulfill that desire that it gives over to the
demon of speed; it picks up the pace to show us
that it no longer wishes to be remembered; that it
is tired of itself; sick of itself; that it wants to blow
out the tiny trembling flame of memory.

 

*F. Goya – The Speed and Daring of Juanito Apiñani in the Ring of Madrid
