“Because I am a man long ago forsaken by human beings, I live on earth, together with the hearts of dogs similarly abandoned. I will never wage war either for justice or against evil and I cowardly shut my eyes to love. I willingly laugh at obscenity and worry not a bit over misery, and live shitting and pissing everywhere.
Because I am a man who long ago despaired of human beings, I live surrounded by trash, junk, things of no use, despising all utility. Being neither a merchant nor a salaried worker, nor a manufacturer, that is, not a fraud, not a liar, not a thief, just a ‘Nobody’, I hide among garbage and junk and such useless things and live as I like in a deserted house of the soul.”
