Surrealism will usher you into death, which is a secret society. It will glove your hand, burying therein the profound M with which the word Memory begins. Do not forget to make proper arrangements for your last will and testament: speaking personally, I ask that I be taken to the cemetery in a moving van. May my friends destroy every last copy of the printing of the Speech concerning the modicum of Reality.
Andre Breton modicum quote

It's a war of attrition. If you have patience and a modicum of faith in yourself your chances are not too bad.
