Jorge Luis Borges

Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986)

“There are many men adept in those diverse disciplines, but few capable of imagination – fewer still capable of subordinating imagination to a rigorous and systematic plan. The plan is so vast that the contribution of each writer is infinitesimal.”

From Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius, by Jorge Luis Borges, translated by Andrew Hurley (Penguin Classics, 1998).
