Imprisonment and Freedom

Academic freedom?

To be an academic is to lose that freedom in this superfluous world of words words words…

Ideally my life is a drama of travelling around nowhere and nothing but air…

Facing myself, I am honest enough to confess that I would rather be locked up in a lone cellar, or better – a mental hospital. These places, are paradises, to this weary stale flat and unprofitable earth; these places, are where I shall have freedom, freedom to think, to write, to reflect, without the cumbersome nonsense of this grave.

Imprisonment is thus what sets us free – isn’t prison, to be devoutly wished?
