You have the right to learn what no one can teach.

You ask yourself the question, and then you answer it.

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

zizek on writing

I hate writing. I so intensely hate writing — I cannot tell you how much. The moment I am at the end of one project I have the idea that I didn’t really succeed in telling what I wanted to tell, that I need a new project — it’s an absolute nightmare. But my whole economy of writing is in fact based on an obsessional ritual to avoid the actual act of writing.
