I can negate everything of that part of me that lives on vague nostalgias, except this desire for unity, this longing to solve, this need for clarity and cohesion. I can refute everything in this world surrounding me that offends or enraptures me, except this chaos, this sovereign chance and this divine equivalence which springs from anarchy.

This is one Stoppard drama that you don’t have to be Einstein to understand — you can feel it as well as think it. (…) Breathtaking, exhilarating and deeply satisfying.
