Il criterio era rigoroso, e credo sia lo stesso seguito dai servizi segreti:

Il criterio era rigoroso, e credo sia lo stesso seguito dai servizi segreti:

non ci sono informazioni migliori delle altre,

il potere sta nello schedarle tutte, e poi cercare le connessioni.

Le connessioni ci sono sempre, basta volerle trovare .

Umberto Eco

Il pendolo di Foucault

Milano 1988


Das Kriterium war streng, und ich glaube, es ist dasselbe, das auch die Geheimdienste anwenden:

Keine Information ist weniger wert als die andere,

das Geheimnis besteht darin, sie alle zu sammeln und dann Zusammenhänge

zwischen ihnen zu suchen.

Zusammenhänge gibt es immer, man muß sie nur finden wollen.

Umberto Eco

Das Foucaultsche Pendel

deutsche Übersetzung von Burkhart Kroeber, München 1989


I had a strict rule, which I think secret services follow, too:

No piece of information is superior to any other.

Power lies in the having them all on file and then finding the connections.

There are always connections; you have only to want to find them.

Umberto Eco

Foucault’s Pendulum

English translation by William Weaver, New York 1989


Or does this meet the content?

So Geographers in Afric-Maps
With Savage-Pictures fill their Gaps;
And o'er unhabitable Downs
Place Elephants for want of Towns.

Jonathan Swift
On Poetry: A Rapsody.
Re-printed in London, 1733.
