on authorship of texts

crosspost from the jesus bunker

"Text can not have one author, nobody is ultimately the owner of text, just as nobody is the owner of the language he uses every day. Text belongs to nobody and it belongs to all. You can not say: here I wrote a play, a poem, a novel, because those works become all the time, they bounce into one another in different places and times, they grow, they pulsate, they shuffle meanings, they are born on the way and they are copied from the air."

Writers and Sanity

"If stone sober people can fuck like they're out of their minds -- can actually be out of their minds while caught in that throe -- why shouldn't writers be able to go bonkers and still stay sane?"

- Stephen King
