monkey with a typewriter
"You like the mind to be a neat machine, equipped to work efficiently, if narrowly, and
with no extra bits or useless parts. I like the mind to be a dustbin of scraps of brilliant
fabric, odd gems, worthless but fascinating curiosities, tinsel, quaint bits of carving, and
a reasonable amount of healthy dirt. Shake the machine and it goes out of order;
shake the dustbin and it adjusts itself beautifully to its new position."
Robertson Davis. Tempest Tost
