The reported death on Monday of the Random House editor of the 1996
book Primary Colors: A Novel of Politics  suggests a search in this journal
for “primary colors.”  From that search, some non-political quotations —

From “The Relations between Poetry and Painting,”
by Wallace Stevens:“The theory of poetry, that is to say, the total of the theories of poetry, often seems to become in time a mystical theology or, more simply, a mystique. The reason for this must by now be clear. The reason is the same reason why the pictures in a museum of modern art often seem to become in time a mystical aesthetic, a prodigious search of appearance, as if to find a way of saying and of establishing that all things, whether below or above appearance, are one and that it is only through reality, in which they are reflected or, it may be, joined together, that we can reach them. Under such stress, reality changes from substance to subtlety, a subtlety in which it was natural for Cézanne to say: ‘I see planes bestriding each other and sometimes straight lines seem to me to fall’ or ‘Planes in color. . . . The colored area where shimmer the souls of the planes, in the blaze of the kindled prism, the meeting of planes in the sunlight.’ The conversion of our Lumpenwelt  went far beyond this. It was from the point of view of another subtlety that Klee could write: ‘But he is one chosen that today comes near to the secret places where original law fosters all evolution. And what artist would not establish himself there where the organic center of all movement in time and space—which he calls the mind or heart of creation— determines every function.’ Conceding that this sounds a bit like sacerdotal jargon, that is not too much to allow to those that have helped to create a new reality, a modern reality, since what has been created is nothing less.”

From Bester’s The Deceivers (1981):

He stripped, went to his Japanese bed in the monk’s cell,
thrashed, swore, and slept at last, dreaming crazed

From a New York Times  obituary today —

“Centering prayer is all about heartfulness, which
is a little different from mindfulness,” the Rev. Carl Arico,
a co-founder of Contemplative Outreach, said in a
telephone interview. “It goes to the relationship with God,
who is already there. It’s not sitting in a void.”
