Next time you’re asked what’s on your Santa list, retort: “We do not know what we want and yet we are responsible for what we are — that is the fact.” Chances are Santa will be so perplexed, you will end up with that organic silk pillowcase you’ve been longing for.

Silk with Sartre. That’s the spirit!
