"I do not aspire to the heights that you have reached, Najla: I play with the lines, fold them, spread them out, colour them and throw them into every sky...

For, on this current journey through purgatory, I am content with the simple, I am looking out for the short cuts, those that lead straight to salvation."

Taken from the book "The Fantastic Strokes of Imagination" short story, 1979
