Words of Wisdom from Tristan Tzara

My favourite two quotes at the moment, both from Tristan Tzara:

"advertising and business are also elements of poetry"

and of course, a great "explanation" of Dadaism:

"Perhaps you will understand me better when I tell you that Dada is a virgin microbe that penetrates with the insistence of air into all the spaces that reason has not been able to fill with words or conventions."

or from Hugo Ball: "In these [...] poems we totally renounce the language that journalism has abused and corrupted."
