An Absinthe Manifesto?

Ingmar Bergman
At Absinthe we enjoy a good manifesto as much as anyone and we've been working on one of our own. But instead of depending on our own clever lines we've decided to enlist the collective wisdom of some of our favorite European artists, writers, & filmmakers to succinctly reflect Absinthe's vision and mission.    

We’re looking for suggestions before we finalize our list. Here are a few that we’re considering now:

  • Only through art can we emerge from ourselves and know what another person sees—Marcel Proust

  • The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion—Albert Camus

  • Of all that is written, I love only what a person has written with his own blood—Friedrich Nietzsche

  • Lilies often grow out of carcasses' arseholes—Ingmar Bergman

(Ok, my co-editor has vetoed the Bergman quote!)

What are your suggestions?
