adorno bumper stickers

There are moments in Minima Moralia in which Adorno’s fragmentary thought-images condense even further into little biting nuggets and zippy one-liners. Some day I’m going to start an Adorno bumper sticker and fortune cookie line:

“The splinter in your eye is the best magnifying-glass”

“To say ‘we’ and mean ‘I’ is one of the most recondite insults.”

“Every work of art is an uncommitted crime”

“True thoughts are those alone which do not understand themselves”

“Love you will find only where you may show yourself weak with out provoking strength”

“Artistic productivity is the capacity for being voluntarily involuntary”

“Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth”

“Hope is soonest found among the comfortless”
