'd'ailleurs, c'est toujours les autres qui meurent'

/ the epitaph that marcel duchamp chose for his own tombstone, translated 'in any case, it's always somebody else who dies', simply beautiful. above is a photograph of duchamp, who i learned online here was a chess master in his time. interesting that duchamp was so interested in death, especially in connection to ingmar bergman and the seventh seal, as this film links chess to death.
