Rohmer on significance

What would a burst of laughter or anxious twitching signify if they did not find their visible echo in the universe?

One might say that art consists of giving each thing a name other than its own.

It is no longer important to sing of things but, rather, to make them sing themselves.

-- Eric Rohmer The Taste For Beauty
Translated by Carol Volk
