Leslie Fiedler's essay "Cross the Border — Close the Gap" was first given in 1968 at the University of Freiburg and published first in the German weekly Christ und Welt.


"In short, I suggest that at least part of the thick description of what le Penseur is trying to do in saying things to himself is that he is trying, by success/failure tests, to find out whether or not the things that he is saying would or would not be utilisable as leads or pointers."--"What is 'Le Penseur' Doing?", 1968, Gilbert Ryle


- [Joan Bakewell] "What you were also attempting to do, as I understand it, was devalue the art as an object simply by saying, 'if I say it's a work of art, that makes it a work of art.'" --Marcel Duchamp interviewed by Joan Bakewell on Late Night Line-Up on 5 June 1968


“In the illusory babels of language, an artist might advance specifically to get lost, and to intoxicate himself in dizzying syntaxes, seeking odd intersections of meaning, strange corridors of history, unexpected echoes, unknown humors, or voids of knowledge… but this quest is risky, full of bottomless fictions and endless architectures and counter-architectures… at the end, if there is an end, are perhaps only meaningless reverberations.” --"A Museum of Language in the Vicinity of Art" (1968) by Robert Smithson
