The seat of the soul is where the inner world and the outer world meet. Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap. - Novalis

Gertrude Stein: The Language That Rises - 1923-1934
Ulla E. Dydo, Northwestern University Press, 2003.

Stein's “rejection of the rigid conventions of language led her gradually to dissociate herself from all inflexible forms, including hierarchical thinking, authoritarian organization, prescriptive grammar, and chronological narrative — aspects of the patriarchy. In a sense, all her work is a demonstration of possibilities of grammar for democracy.” (Dydo, 17)
