Re: Original Quotes

"The little tavern is frequented by old men who live in the home at the end of the village. They come here, sitting with a glass in one hand, staring at each other without a word. One of them begins telling something he thinks is funny. No one listens, in any case no one laughs. All of them have drudged for years to get here. In the old days, in the countryside, someone would have smothered them under a pillow. A wise recipe, perfected by each family, and incomparably more humane than this one: gathering them together, sitting them here and curing them of boredom by stupor." --E.M. Cioran

All I ask is to be stoned blissful sixteen hours a day. The other eight hours I can handle on my own.

Re: Original Quotes

It’s disconcerting to think about all the good people who have to believe in a world better than this one just to keep their hope intact. "Tomorrow," they tell themselves, "I will witness the fruits of my labor." This mantra is repeated ad infinitum.

Only those who have experienced great suffering have the right to assign a value to existence, for only they know the true cost of life.

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"

Re: Original Quotes

Is there any word more onerous and useless in its implications than 'responsibility'?

Re: Original Quotes

"I was fortunate that some imp of the perverse or unconscious indifference forbade me from taking much interest in schooling and academia. That special megalomania produced by consciousness as the last effort to escape itself, to proclaim oneself a haute couture of the intellect and the imminent dismay that accompanies it when nothing has changed and the world continues despite such feckless narcissism; that you continue to exist after those temporary distractions and the final judgment has not been halted."

Re: Original Quotes

"The true misanthrope doesn't hate his own kind because he has been wronged grievously over time or because he loathes himself. That would be the shallow view of psychology to prescribe a cure afterward. Misanthropy is often found in spending time in a lone anthropology, misguidedly trying to find the higher self, coming down from the mountain, as it were, to speak wisdom. And what's found instead is a profane homunculus dancing around a gaping hole, baying about its exploits."

Re: Original Quotes

"I grow to hate alcohol and the illusion of escape. Sleep and the dreams it sometimes contains I hate for the same reason. Those false regressions only serve to outline a wretched world in ever sharper relief upon waking. Yet, like any common drunk, I fall for the promise of a liquid salvation with each tip of the bottle."
