„You are (I am) is a repetition among other repetitions. You are is I am; I am is you are: you are is I.“

—  Octavio Paz, Context: Repetitions, you wander about lost amid repetitions, you are merely a repetition among other repetitions. An artist of repetitions, a past master of disfigurations, a maestro of demolitions. The trees repeat other trees, the sands other sands, the jungle of letters is repetition, the stretch of dunes is repetition, the plethora is emptiness, emptiness is a plethora, I repeat repetitions, lost in the thicket of signs, wandering about in the trackless sand, stains on the wall beneath this sun of Galta, stains on this afternoon in Cambridge, a thicket and a stretch of dunes, stains on my forehead that assembles and disassembles vague landscapes. You are (I am) is a repetition among other repetitions. You are is I am; I am is you are: you are is I. Demolitions: I stretch out full length atop my triturations, I inhabit my demolitions. Ch. 6

„If I am I because I am I, and you are you because you are you, then I am I and you are you. But if I am I because you are you and you are you because I am I, then I am not I and you are not you!“

—  Menachem Mendel of Kotzk Polish rabbi 1787 - 1859
As quoted in Tales of the Hasidim : The Later Masters (1948) by Martin Buber as translated by Olga Marx <!-- also in Touchstones of Reality : Existential Trust and the Community of Peace (1972) by Maurice S. Friedman; also A Heart Of Wisdom : Religion and Human Wholeness (1992) by Maurice S. Friedman, p. 61 --> Variant translations: If I am I, simply because I am I, and thou art thou, simply because thou art thou; then I am I and thou art thou. But if I am I because thou art thou, and thou art thou because I am I, then I am not I and thou art not thou. As quoted in The Rift in Israel: Religious Authority and Secular Democracy (1971) by Samuel Clement Leslie, p. 145 If I am I, because you are you, and you are you, because I am I, then I am not I, and you are not you. But if I am I because I am I, and you are you because you are you, then I am I and you are you, and we can talk. As quoted in Let Us Reason Together (1970) by William Berkowitz and William Leonard Laurence
