"I remember what Braque said to me one day—As he went about copying the old masters in the Louvre, like all the other painters who went there to copy, he finally understood that he would never succeed; and that the same awkwardness would always be there to stop him from copying accurately. One fine day, he said to himself: well! I am my awkwardnesses! I must plunge into that. I had a slightly similar feeling in relationship to traditional literary schools, and I too decided to plunge into my difference." —Francis Ponge
