"We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives."-Toni Morrison, from Nobel Lecture in Literature, 1993
"A translation maintains above all its own fiction, it maintains the true fiction that translation is possible. It is this fiction, both hopeful and frightening, promising communication where none by definition should be possible, and simultaneously eliminating the possible communication of difference itself so to speak, regarding difference, or of its incommunicability-and so effacing a vital, ineffable otherness proffered by the other idiom."-Eric Prenowitz, from the Translator's Note to Jacques Derrida's Archive Fever
