“Dresser des listes est l'une des plus anciennes activités du poète.”  

("Drawing lists is one of the poet's oldest activities.”)
― Jorge Luis Borges

“The list is the origin of culture. It’s part of the history of art and literature. What does culture want? To make infinity comprehensible. It also wants to create order.”
— Umberto Eco, renowned Italian author
