Believe that he could play a game of chess.

A man who bridged the divides.

"And now this is 'an inheritance' -
Upright, rudimentary, unshiftably planked
In the long ago, yet willable forward
Again and again and again." (Beowulf)
To find a for(u)m that accommodates the mess, that is the task of the artist now. (Samuel Beckett)
