Interesting Words - Jacob Epstein
"I sometimes envy Isabelle {his cat} the leisure of her days and all the things she doesn't have to do: work her way through the turgid fatuity of a NEW YORK TIMES editorial, make a quarterly tax payment, meet a deadline, believe in progress, feign interest. She need give no thought to owning a fax machine or computer; she need not have anything to do with technical advances. 'So that's the telephone,' said Degas to Forain, when the latter was so proud of having had one installed in his house. 'They ring, and you run.' When my telephone rings, Isabelle doesn't even blink."
