Eckhart + Bey = ?

The Dadaists would juxtapose seemingly unrelated words and images to create new meaning. Here are two quotes that I pulled from my Book of Commonplace:

"The shell must be cracked apart if what is in it is to come out, for if you want the kernel, you must break the shell." -- Meister Eckhart

"Everything has a value, provided it appears at the right place at the right time. It's a matter of recognizing that value, that quality, and then to transform it into something that can be used. If you come across something valuable and tuck it away in your metaphorical suitcase there's sure to come a moment when you can make use of it." -- Jurgen Bey
