is not Knowledge,
I do not know that this higher knowledge amounts to anything more definite than a novel and grand surprise on a sudden revelation of the insufficiency of all that we called Knowledge before - a discovery that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in our philosophy.
text :Henry David Thoreau, Walking, 1862.
"Walking" began as a lecture called "The Wild," delivered by Henry at the Concord Lyceum on April 23, 1851. He gave this lecture many times, developing it into the essay finally published in the Atlantic Monthly after his death, in 1862.

You make films to give people something, to transport them somewhere else, and it doesn't matter if you transport them to a world of intuition or a world of intellect (...) A lot of people don't understand the direction in which I'm going. They think I've betrayed my way of looking at the world. I absolutely don't feel I've betrayed any of my opinions or my attitude to life. The realm of superstitions, fortune-telling, presentiments, intuition, dreams, all this is the inner life of a human being, and all this is the hardest thing to film (...) I've been trying to get there from the beginning. I'm somebody who doesn't know, somebody who's searching.
(...) If I have a goal, then it is to escape from this literalism. I'll never achieve it although I keep on trying (...) I identify more or less with his [Ingmar Bergman] attitude towards the world, towards men and women and what we do in everyday life... forgetting about what is most important. (...) I don't like the word 'success', and I always fiercely defend myself against it, because I don't know what the word means at all. For me, success means attaining something I'd really like. That's success. And what I really like is probably unattainable, so I don't look at things in these terms. [My recognition has] got nothing to do with success. That's very far from success.
quote : Krzysztof Kieslowsky image & video : Talking Heads (Gadajace Glowy), documentary film 14:10, 1980.
a Note: In 1979 Krzysztof Kieślowski carried out a probe among polish society.
The questions were like: who are you? What you want? What is the most important thing to you? This short documentary film is the result of the probe. Kieślowski chose 44 people and set them in alphabetical order. Consecutive talking-heads appear on the screen and on the bottom appears the year of birth of each person.
I draw the conclusion that, assuming no important wars and no important increase in population, the economic problem may be solved, or be at least within sight of solution, within a hundred years. This means that the economic problem is not – if we look into the future – the permanent problem of the human race.
Why, you may ask, is this so startling? It is startling because – if, instead of looking into the future, we look into the past – we find that the economic problem, the struggle for subsistence, always has been hitherto the primary, most pressing problem of the human race – not only of the human race, but of the whole of the biological kingdom from the beginnings of life in its most primitive forms.
Thus we have been expressly evolved by nature – with all our impulses and deepest instincts – for the purpose of solving the economic problem. If the economic problem is solved, mankind will be deprived of its traditional purpose.
Thus for the first time since his creation man will be faced with his real, his permanent problem – how to use his freedom from pressing economic cares, how to occupy the leisure, which science and compound interest will have won for him, to live wisely and agreeably and well.
For many ages to come the old Adam will be so strong in us that everybody will need to do some work if he is to be contented. Three-hour shifts or a fifteen-hour week may put off the problem for a great while. For three hours a day is quite enough to satisfy the old Adam in most of us!
Yet there is no country and no people, I think, who can look forward to the age of leisure and of abundance without a dread. It is a fearful problem for the ordinary person, with no special talents, to occupy himself, especially if he no longer has roots in the soil or in custom or in the beloved conventions of a traditional society.
For we have been trained too long to strive and not to enjoy.
Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.
When it comes to atoms,
language can be used only as in poetry.
is not nearly so concerned with describing facts
It is not likely that posterity will fall in love with us,
but not impossible that it may respect or sympathize;
so a man would rather leave behind him the portrait of his spirit than a portrait of his face.
