The contemplative researcher lives aloof from society, a silent and unseen example it would seem. How is he to share his refined sensitivities, his ascetic and indeed aesthetic findings in ways that reveal their hidden purpose?

Laubies, Aphorism No. 4

Hostility always stimulates me. With nothing to lose, I have the taste to displease. It is not out of pride; but seeing what they like, one is delighted most by being detested.
René Laubies, Portraits et Aphorismes, 2001.
