“Amigos mios, ha llegado la hora de darnos cuenta de que la moral debería ser la base de la religión y no esta la base de la moral”
Marquis de Sade, La filosofía en el tocador
“It is only by sacrificing everything to sensual pleasure that this being known as Man, cast into the world in spite of himself, may succeed in sowing a few roses on the thorns of life.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“It is only by sacrificing everything to the senses’ pleasure that this individual, who never asked to be cast into this universe of woe, that this poor creature who goes under the name of Man, may be able to sow a smattering of roses atop the thorny path of life.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Bedroom
“Believe me, Eugenie, the words "vice" and "virtue" supply us only with local meanings. There is no action, however bizarre you may picture it, that is truly criminal; or one that can really be called virtuous. Everything depends on our customs and on the climates we live in. What is considered a crime here is often a virtue a few hundred leagues away; and the virtues of another hemisphere might, quite conversely, be regarded as crimes among us. There is no atrocity that hasn't been deified, no virtue that hasn't been stigmatized.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“It has pleased Nature so to make us that we attain happiness only by way of pain.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Bedroom
“To lie is always a necessity for women; above all when they choose to deceive, falsehood becomes vital to them.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Women are not made for one single man; 'tis for men at large Nature created them.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“The imagination serves us only when the mind is absolutely free of any prejudice. A single prejudice suffices to cool off the imagination. This whimsical part of the mind is so unbridled as to be uncontrollable. Its greatest triumphs, its most eminent delights consist in smashing all the restraints that oppose it. Imagination is the enemy of all norms, the idolater of all disorder and of all that bears the color of crime.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“One must feel sorry for those who have strange tastes, but never insult them. Their wrong is Nature's too; they are no more responsible for having come into the world with tendencies unlike ours than are we for being born bandy-legged for well-proportioned.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Never may an act of possession be exercised upon a free being; the exclusive possession of a woman is no less unjust than the possession of slaves; all men are born free, all have equal rights: never may there be granted to one sex the legitimate right to lay monopolizing hands on the other, and never may one of these sexes, or classes, arbitrarily posses the other.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Wdzięczność to najgorsze z upokorzeń. Nic tak nie zobowiązuje, jak korzystanie z cudzych dobrodziejstw. Nie ma wyjścia: albo odpłacić tym samym, albo też czuć się podle. Najmocniej odczują to ludzie dumni, którym wyświadczona łaska ciąży tak bardzo, iż jedynym uczuciem, na jakie ich stać, jest nienawiść do dobroczyńcy.”
Marquis de Sade, La Philosophie Dans Le Boudoir
“The state of a moral man, is one of tranquillity and peace; the state of an immoral man is one of perpetual unrest.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Não há horror que não possa ser divinizado, nem virtude que não possa ser impugnada.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Não há homem que não queira ser déspota quando está com tesão.”
Marquis de Sade, La Philosophie dans le boudoir ou Les Instituteurs immoraux
“de suprimir para siempre la atrocidad de la pena de muerte, porque la ley que atenta contra la vida de un hombre es impracticable, injusta e inadmisible.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or The Immoral Mentors
“É desprezando a opinião dos homens que você permanecerá na lembrança deles.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Para que havemos de vegetar estupidamente na terra, e ser esquecidos ao fechar os olhos?”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Valor, ángel mío, valor; acuérdate de que sólo por las penas se alcanzan siempre los placeres.”
Marquis de Sade, La filosofía en el tocador
“Tu cuerpo es tuyo, sólo tuyo; sólo tú en el mundo tienes derecho a gozar de él y a hacer gozar con él a quien bien te parezca.”
Marquis de Sade, La filosofía en el tocador
“Ne kadar tuhaf olduğunu düşünürseniz düşünün, mutlak anlamda canice olabilecek tek bir eylem olmadığı gibi mutlak anlamda erdemli denilebilecek tek bir eylem de yoktur. Her şey bizim geleneklerimize ve içinde yaşadığımız iklime bağlıdır; burada suç olan şey yüz fersah daha aşağıda çoğu zaman erdem kabul edilir, bir başka yarımkürede erdem olarak görülen şey, tersine dönerek bizim için suç olabilir. Tek bir dehşet yoktur ki tanrısallaştırılmamış olsun, tıpkı gölge düşürülmemiş tek bir erdem olmaması gibi…”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“¡Creedlo, ciudadanos, aquel a quien la espada material de las leyes no detiene tampoco se detendrá por el temor moral de los suplicios del infierno, de los que se burla desde su infancia!. En una palabra, vuestro teísmo ha hecho cometer muchas fechorías, pero jamás ha evitado una sola. Si es cierto que las pasiones ciegan, que su efecto es tender ante nuestros ojos una nube que nos oculte los peligros de que están rodeadas, ¿cómo podemos suponer que los que están lejos de nosotros, como lo están los castigos anunciados por vuestro dios, puedan llegar a disipar esa nube que no disuelve siquiera la espada de las leyes, siempre suspendida sobre las pasiones?”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“From the two things one: either my husband is a brutal, jealous one, or he’s a refined man; in the first hypothesis, the best I can do is to revenge myself for his conduct; in the second, I would know not to burden myself; since I taste of pleasures, he’ll be happy for it if he’s honest: there’s not a refined man who doesn’t take pleasure at the spectacle of the happiness of the person he adores.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Si hay algo extravagante en el mundo es ver a los hombres, que no conocen a su dios y lo que ese dios pueda exigir más que según sus limitadas ideas, querer, sin embargo, decidir sobre la naturaleza de lo que contenta o desagrada a ese ridículo fantasma de su imaginación.”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“La imaginación es el aguijón de los placeres; en los de esta especie, lo regula todo, es el móvil de todo; ahora bien, ¿no se goza por ella?
¿No es de ella de la que proceden las voluptuosidades más excitantes?”
Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir or, The Immoral Mentors
“Aprovecha el tiempo más feliz de tu vida: ¡son demasiado cortos estos felices años de nuestros placeres! Si somos lo bastante afortunadas para haber gozado en ellos, deliciosos recuerdos nos consuelan y nos divierten aún en nuestra vejez. ¿Que los hemos perdido?... Recuerdos amargos, horribles remordimientos nos desgarran y se unen a los tormentos de la edad para rodear de lágrimas y zarzas la funesta proximidad del ataúd... ¿Tienes acaso la locura de la inmortalidad?”
Marquis de Sade, La Filosofía en el Tocador
