a single road

"For in the end we all - even I - live by eating, drinking, sleeping.
Those are the fundamental truths, but one has to pay for them.
I've worked a lot. From this point of view, I don't wish to deny
the success of my works. I have a good conscience; I've written
thousands of slips of paper. In the sense of this responsibility -
work, conscience, fulfilment of duty - I'm no worse a worker
than anyone who has built a road."

- Hanne Darboven
