I recently ran across this quote from Hamann on Wikiquote:
Let us assume that we invited an unknown person to a game of cards. If this person answered us, “I don’t play,” we would either interpret this to mean that he did not understand the game, or that he had an aversion to it which arose from economic, ethical, or other reasons. Let us imagine, however, that an honorable man, who was known to possess every possible skill in the game, and who was well versed in its rules and its forbidden tricks, but who could like a game and participate in it only when it was an innocent pastime, were invited into a company of clever swindlers, who were known as good players and to whom he was equal on both scores, to join them in a game. If he said, “I do not play,” we would have…

Also it can be real difficulties with comprehension of what Osborne is actually talking about- concept, contemporary, conditions,unity, collectivization and then again concept conditions and pre=conditions, and post+conditions and, most importantly, propositions and propositions again.

Antonin Artaud, “The Pursuit of Fecality,” To Have Done with the Judgment of God (1947)
“You are outside life, you are above life, you have miseries which the ordinary man does not know, you exceed the normal level, and it is for this that men refuse to forgive you, you poison their peace of mind, you undermine their stability. You have irrepressible pains whose essence is to be in-adaptable to any known state, indescribable in words. You have repeated and shifting pains, incurable pains, pains beyond imagining, pains which are neither of the body nor of the soul, but which partake of both. And I share your suffering, and I ask you: who dares to ration our relief? We are not going to kill ourselves just yet. In the meantime, leave us the hell alone.”
Antonin Artaud , The Liquidation of Opium (1925)
