You are done for - a living dead man - not when you stop loving but stop hating. Hatred preserves: in it, in its chemistry, resides the mystery of life.
Emile M. Cioran
Life is possible only by the deficiencies of our imagination and memory.
The desire to die was my one and only concern to it I have sacrificed everything, even death.
To act is to anchor in an imminent future, so imminent it becomes almost tangible to act is to feel you are consubstantial with that future.
Isn't history ultimately the result of our fear of boredom?
Intelligence flourishes only in the ages when belief withers.
What does the future, that half of time, matter to the man who is infatuated with eternity?
What surrounds us we endure better for giving it a name - and moving on.
Music is the refuge of souls ulcerated by happiness.
We would not be interested in human beings if we did not have the hope of someday meeting someone worse off than ourselves.
No one can enjoy freedom without trembling.
Woes and wonders of Power, that tonic hell, synthesis of poison and panacea.
Jealousy - that jumble of secret worship and ostensible aversion.
For you who no longer posses it, freedom is everything, for us who do, it is merely an illusion.
To Live signifies to believe and hope - to lie and to lie to oneself.
Negation is the mind's first freedom, yet a negative habit is fruitful only so long as we exert ourselves to overcome it, adapt it to our needs once acquired it can imprison us.
Crime in full glory consolidates authority by the sacred fear it inspires.
Society is not a disease, it is a disaster. What a stupid miracle that one can live in it.
Life inspires more dread than death - it is life which is the great unknown.
The fear of being deceived is the vulgar version of the quest for Truth.
