From the Jessica Esch: Fill in the Blanks exhibition 

Original Statement:
"I know it sounds a bit mystical, but I think you’ve got to know an awful lot about what you are writing, even if you never write specifically about it. I think there’s a texture. You write with knowledge, and it’s different from writing with as little knowledge as possible. You write as little as possible, but you know as much as possible." -Jenny Diski
