“What this world needs is truth, not consolation. It must find itself in its ordeal and by way of its restlessness, not in the solace of edifying discourses that do nothing but pile on more testimony to its misery.”
Jean-Luc Nancy, Hegel: The Restlessness Of The Negative

“Evil is in the existent as its innermost possibility of refusing existence”
Jean-Luc Nancy

“La vérité du vin et des enfants est vérité qui ne se cherche ni ne se trouve, qui ne se prouve ni ne s'établit: elle est donnée, entièrement donnée, donnée avant toute donation. On ne remonte pas en amont. Elle coule de source, et voilà comment on peut
boire poésie ou vertu: à la source, à la bouteille, dans une coulée qui ne doit rien qu'à la gorge qui l'accueille. Poésie ou vertu, image ou musique, pensée, émotion: boire signifie absorber, devenir éponge.”
Jean-Luc Nancy, Ivresse
