"to be a foreigner, but in one's own tongue, not only when speaking a language other then one's own. to be bilingual, MULTILINGUAL, BUT IN ONE AND THE SAME LANGUAGE, WITHOUT EVEN A DIALECT OR PATOIS. to be a bastard, a half-breed (...) that is when style becomes a language. that is when language becomes intensive, a pure continuum of values and intensities. that is when all language becomes secret, yet has nothing to hide, as opposed to when one carves out a secret subsystem within language."
