Cioran (cont.)

I've always found this image of a blind fiddler by André Kertész very evocative of Cioran's Transylvania, even if Kertész was a representative of the race whose only achievements, Cioran said, were gypsy music and Hungarian women.

From The Trouble with Being Born: 'No one has loved this world more than I, and yet if it had been offered to me, even as a child, on a platter, I should have shriked "Too late, too late!"'
