“Whatever phrases you may pursue in your lyrical paths, please don’t forget that you yourself emanate from the ongoing ornamentation of the corpus of signs, that you are actually a sign within this corpus of signs, and that everything that you do becomes inscribed as a sign within the universal ornament. So if you’re getting blown around in a storm of signs, just hook yourself around the tendril which pleases you best.”

Hannes Zulauf: Das Weltornament. Erstes Kapitel: Die Grundlagen. (The Universal Ornament. First Chapter: Basic Principles.)
