“I am enraptured by Hindu philosophy, whose essential endeavor is to surmount the self; and everything I do, everything I think is only myself and the selfs humiliations.”
Emile Cioran


“I think of so many friends who are no more, and I pity them. Yet they are not so much to be pitied, for they have solved every problem, beginning with the problem of death.”
Emile Cioran


“If I used to ask myself, over a coffin: “What good did it do the occupant to be born?,” I now put the same question about anyone alive.”
Emile Cioran


“I am happy of being crazy and not belonging to the world of the sane;
those who embezzle from the banks,
who lie from the temples,
and kill in the name of the Fatherland.”
Facundo Cabral
Argentinian composer


“Give them bread and circuses and the will never revolt.”
Juvenal


“A zoologist who observed gorillas in their native habitat was amazed by the uniformity of their life and their vast idleness. Hours and hours without doing anything … Was boredom unknown to them?

This is indeed a question raised by a human, a busy ape. Far from fleeing monotony, animals crave it, and what they most dread is to see it end. For it ends only to be replaced by fear, the cause of all activity.”

Inaction is divine; yet it is against inaction that man has rebelled. Man alone, in nature, is incapable of enduring monotony, man alone wants something to happen at all costs—something, anything…. Thereby he shows himself unworthy of his ancestor: the need for novelty is the characteristic of an alienated gorilla.”
Emile Cioran
