"Time urges because the task is long... Caught up in a movement that began to move mountains, the worlds, forces, and forms in the likeness of what regularly revolves and reshapes the river, we experience an urgency: that of doing and thinking in order to be able to do. (...) It is necessary to plunge into this river that is never the same, diving and feeling the movement of the river bed, the movement of the banks, the force of the current. And try to keep the spirit far away in the sea, where the river reaches." (Jean-luc Nancy, Que faire?, 2016)
