'pataphysics

A Quote by Marcel Duchamp on god, death, atheism, liberation, society, determinism, language, chess, play, and pataphysics

All this twaddle, the existence of God, atheism, determinism, liberation, societies, death, etc., are pieces of a chess game called language, and they are amusing only if one does not preoccupy oneself with 'winning or losing this game of chess.' 

Marcel Duchamp (1887 - 1968)
