Quote from Leaves of Hypnos (NY : Grossman 1973) by René Char, French poet, Surrealist and leader among the French Resistance : the whole series of Hypnos poems expresseses a profoundly Everythingian ethic, and while French symbolist poetry may not regularly be your proverbial cup of tea, Char wrote not only with amazing acuity and clarity, but he also lobbed grenades at Nazi convoys, blew up bridges and transported anti-Occupation literature around Vichy France, in the middle of the night, under threat of death, on a rickety old bike; so cool points for him.
