Dadaism Disgust

Dadaism Disgust by Tristran Tzara

Dadaism Disgust by Tristran Tzara

Every product of disgust capable of becoming a negation of the family is Dada; a protest with
the fists of its whole being engaged in destructive action: Dada; knowledge of all the means
rejected up until now by the shamefaced sex of comfortable compromise and good
manners: Dada; abolition of logic, which is the dance of those impotent to create:
Dada; of every social hierarchy and equation set up for the sake of values by our
valets: Dada: every object, all objects, sentiments, obscurities, apparitions and the
precise clash of parallel lines are weapons for the fight: Dada; abolition of memory:
Dada; abolition of archaeology: Dada; abolition of prophets: Dada; abolition of the
future: Dada; absolute and unquestionable faith in every god that is the immediate
product of spontaneity: Dada; elegant and unprejudiced leap from a harmony to the other
sphere; trajectory of a word tossed like a screeching phonograph record; to respect all
individuals in their folly of the moment: whether it be serious, fearful, timid, ardent,
vigorous, determined, enthusiastic; to divest one’s church of every useless cumbersome
accessory; to spit out disagreeable or amorous ideas like a luminous waterfall, or coddle
them – with the extreme satisfaction that it doesn’t matter in the least – with the same
intensity in the thicket of core’s soul pure of insects for blood well-born, and gilded with
bodies of archangels. Freedom: Dada Dada Dada, a roaring of tense colors, and interlacing of
opposites and of all contradictions, grotesques, inconsistencies: LIFE

About Carl William Brown

I'm Carl William Brown a holistic teacher, a webmaster, a trader, and a writer of aphorisms and essays. I have written more than 9,000 original quotations and at present I'm also working at my only novel, Fort Attack, which is also a wide and open blog project. At the moment I'm teaching English in a secondary school, but up to now I have done a lot of other things as well, both in business, educational, sport and social fields. Some years ago, in 1997 following the examples of the Rotary or the Lyons Clubs I founded the Daimon Club Organization to promote every sort of activities, creativity, art, literature, new technologies, informatics, business and marketing, public health and education and to meet new friends with these kind of interests.
