"Write to the nth power, N-1, write with slogans: Form rhizomes and not roots, never plant! Don't sow, forage! Be neither a One nor a Many, but multiplicities! Form a line, never a point! Speed transforms the point into a line. Be fast, even while standing still! Line of chance, line of hips, line of flight. Don't arouse the General in yourself! Not an exact idea, but just as idea (Godard). Have short-term ideas. Make maps, not photographs or drawings. Be the Pink Panther, and let your loves be like the wasp and the orchid, the cat and the baboon. As they sing of old man river:

He don't plant tatos
Don't plant cotton
Them that plants them is soon
forgotten
But old man river he just keeps rollin
along.

A rhizome doesn't begin and doesn't end, but is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo."

from Rhizome by Deleuze & Guattari
