Kazimir Malevitch. Extrait de "La paresse comme vérité effective de l'homme".
Men, people, all of humanity, set themselves a goal and this goal is always in the future. One of these objectives is perfection, which means God. The human imagination has discribed him and has even given details about the days of creation in which God built the world in six days and that on the seventh day he rested. How long this day lasted, nobody knows. One might think that this time of repose could be a physical repose, but in reality, it was not the case : if he should have built the universe making a physical work, God would have worked as much as a man. It is clear that it was not a physical work and then in consequence he did not need to rest. To make his creation, he just had to pronounce the words "let there be" : the universe in all its diversity was created repeating six times "let there be". Since that time, God has not created anymore, he rests on the throne of laziness and contemplates his own wisdom.
Kazimir Malevitch. Quoted from "Laziness as man's effective truth".
