Mina Loy ? 



Some of Mina Loy's "Aphorisms on Futurism" (as reported by Amara Graps): 
* Die in the past. Live in the future. 
* The Futurist can live a thousand years in one poem. 
* Love the hideous in order to find the sublime core of it. 
* In pressing the material to... derive its essence, matter becomes defined. 
* Forget that you live in houses, so that you may live in yourself. 
* What can you know of expansion; those who limit yourselves to compromise? 
* Love of others is appreciation of oneself. 
* Life is only limited by our prejudices. Destroy them, and you cease to be at the mercy of yourself. 
* Time is the dispersion of intensiveness. 
* The future is limitless - the past is a trail of insidious reactions. 
* The future is only dark from the outside. Leap into it, and it _explodes_ with Light. 
* The smallest person is as great as the Universe. 
* May your egotism be so gigantic that you compromise mankind in your self-sympathy.
