Re: Original Quotes

"When people speak of wanting 'the truth' in society it's almost always a rote request with no real reason behind it. The truth of a small matter will have just as much effect as a large one on their daily lives; that is, very little changes except for circumstances. What they ask is for their beliefs to be validated by people other than themselves, to make a lie as invincible as any truth."

“Evolution cannot avoid bringing intelligent life ultimately to an awareness of one thing above all else and that one thing is futility.”

Re: Original Quotes

"Anyone who makes a habit of fashioning another human being in such a way that they appear to maintain some special relation to the Divine is better off getting a dog."

"All art is motivated by love, even when it's disappointed."

"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

"Even in my happiest moments I cannot fully enjoy myself, since I am not able to stop thinking about Death, Disease and Duty lurking around the corner."

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: Original Quotes

"Artistic literacy has declined so drastically in recent decades that true originality is now only seen as a strange, failed attempt at conformity."

"As the Director of one of the five greatest museums in our Eastern States has more than once remarked to me, From the Stone Age until now, what a decline!" - Ananda Coomaraswamy
