“They want us to be afraid.
They want us to be afraid of leaving our homes.
They want us to barricade our doors
and hide our children.
Their aim is to make us fear life itself!
They want us to hate.
They want us to hate 'the other'.
They want us to practice aggression
and perfect antagonism.
Their aim is to divide us all!
They want us to be inhuman.
They want us to throw out our kindness.
They want us to bury our love
and burn our hope.
Their aim is to take all our light!
They think their bricked walls
will separate us.
They think their damned bombs
will defeat us.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that my soul and your soul are old friends.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that when they cut you I bleed.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that we will never be afraid,
we will never hate
and we will never be silent
for life is ours!”
Kamand Kojouri

Judith Lewis Herman
“Traumatic events destroy the sustaining bonds between individual and community. Those who have survived learn that their sense of self, of worth, of humanity, depends upon a feeling of connection with others. The solidarity of a group provides the strongest protection against terror and despair, and the strongest antidote to traumatic experience. Trauma isolates; the group re-creates a sense of belonging. Trauma shames and stigmatizes; the group bears witness and affirms. Trauma degrades the victim; the group exalts her. Trauma dehumanizes the victim; the group restores her humanity.
Repeatedly in the testimony of survivors there comes a moment when a sense of connection is restored by another person’s unaffected display of generosity. Something in herself that the victim believes to be irretrievably destroyed---faith, decency, courage---is reawakened by an example of common altruism. Mirrored in the actions of others, the survivor recognizes and reclaims a lost part of herself. At that moment, the survivor begins to rejoin the human commonality...”

“Wild animals are less wild and more human than many humans of this world”
Munia Khan

Bret Easton Ellis
“This was the geography around which my reality revolved: it did not occur to me, ever, that people were good or that a man was capable of change or that the world could be a better place through one’s taking pleasure in a feeling or a look or a gesture, of receiving another person’s love or kindness. Nothing was affirmative, the term “generosity of spirit” applied to nothing, was a cliche, was some kind of bad joke. Sex is mathematics. Individuality no longer an issue. What does intelligence signify? Define reason. Desire—meaningless. Intellect is not a cure. Justice is dead. Fear, recrimination, innocence, sympathy, guilt, waste, failure, grief, were things, emotions, that no one really felt anymore. Reflection is useless, the world is senseless. Evil is its only permanence. God is not alive. Love cannot be trusted. Surface, surface, surface was all that anyone found meaning in … this was civilization as I saw it, colossal and jagged …”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

Nick Land
“Machinic desire can seem a little inhuman, as it rips up political cultures, deletes traditions, dissolves subjectivities, and hacks through security apparatuses, tracking a soulless tropism to zero control. This is because what appears to humanity as the history of capitalism is an invasion from the future by an artificial intelligent space that must assemble itself entirely from its enemy's resources.”
Nick Land, Fanged Noumena: Collected Writings, 1987-2007

John Scalzi
“I’m a monster. You’re a monster. We’re all fucking inhuman monsters, and we don’t see a damned thing wrong with it.”
John Scalzi, Old Man's War

“There is only one race, the human race, fighting daily against the inhuman.”
Corina Abdulahm-Negura

Kat Falls
“Remember what I said when I led to Omar and the queen?" I bobbed my head, unable to look away from his jewel-like eyed, shining in the darkness...so much like Chorda's. "That was the lie. Good-bye, Lane," he said and then crept into the darkness.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Kat Falls
“Promise me, Lane,” Rafe pleaded, letting me hear the depth of his anguish.
“Okay. I will,” I said, hating the promise even as I made it. “But only if I hear about a feral infected tiger, which I won't because I'll be on the other side of the wall.”
A smile touched Rafe's lips, genuine this time. “You'll be back. A fierce girl like you belongs on the wild side.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Kat Falls
“The king who stepped into the ballroom wearing a green velvet robe and bejeweled crown was none other that the tiger-man who'd prowled through my nightmares and nearly every waking moment for the past two days. Chorda.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Munia Khan
“Just a little piece of peace can cultivate the land of Palestine, but inhuman human won't let it do that....”
Munia Khan

Kat Falls
“Just promise me something . . . .” He looked down at my hand fisted in his and pushed his fingers into it, compelling me to entwine my fingers with his, a move that was perfectly him. He'd pushed himself into my heart much the same way. “Promise,” he went on, “that if you hear about a grupped-up tiger gone feral, you'll hire a hunter to put me down.”
“No,” I gasped. “You'll have years before that happens and by then, Dr. Solis will have found a cure.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Virginia Woolf
“...quite the chilliest and least human known to me. You see brains floating like so many sea-anemones, nor have they shape or colour.”
Virginia Woolf

Kat Falls
“I won't go,” I whispered against his shoulder. “I'm not leaving you when you're sick.”
“You're not leaving me.” He peeled out of my embrace and faced the edge of the canopy. “I'm leaving you.”
“Wait,” I gasped, reaching for him. I wasn't ready to lose him to the night and the chaos of the zoo. But when Rafe glanced back at me, my hand froze. His eyes were now as luminous as a predator's.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Christina Engela
“Many times we refer to people who express hate or behave in a barbaric, savage 'inhuman' way as 'animals', but on closer inspection we can clearly see that this is in fact, an insult to animals.”
Christina Engela, Dead Man's Hammer

Kat Falls
“Why do girls always chase after the wild ones?” Mahari asked.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Kat Falls
“As Rafe watched the hovercopter circle back, I saw that his aqua eyes had a golden sheen, like sunlight reflecting off the surface of a lake, I couldn't move, couldn't breathe. “Your eyes . . .”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Mark O'Connell
“These robots are literally inhuman, and yet I react no differently to their stumblings and topplings than I would to the pratfalls of a fellow human. I don’t imagine I would laugh at the spectacle of a toaster falling out of an SUV, or a semiautomatic rifle pitching over sideways from an upright position, but there is something about these machines, their human form, with which it is possible to identify sufficiently to make their falling deeply, horribly funny.”
Mark O'Connell, To Be a Machine : Adventures Among Cyborgs, Utopians, Hackers, and the Futurists Solving the Modest Problem of Death

Kat Falls
“You know, for all your talk, you're kind of a good guy yourself.”
“Wrong. I'm the guy that stays alive. (...) and the one you leave behind if you get the chance to escape. You understand?”
Kat Falls

Kat Falls
“Give yourself some credit,” he went on, “not a lot of silkies would have made it this far.”
“I stopped you from killing Chorda,” (...)
“Hey, come one,” Rafe said. “It's your first time in the Feral Zone. Of course you made mistakes.”
“Like falling for the wrong boy?” I'd said it to be funny, since he was always teasing me about Everson, but Rafe grew still.
He turned his gaze on the dark skyline. “No, you didn't. He's a stiff, but he's a good guy, he won't crawl out of your window after you fall asleep or come on to your sister.”
“I don't have a sister.”
“Missing the point.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

“I don't exist.”
The Fart Blast

Kat Falls
“That demented animal didn't deserve a name.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

Kat Falls
“Why you?”

“I don't know, ask him.”

“I'm asking you, so, why don't you just come out and say it?”

Rafe released the door, letting it close. “What are we talking about?”

I dug my nails into my palms, letting the pain brace me for his answer. “Is he your father?”

Rafe's smile returned. “Nope. I'm not your brother, Lane. I know that's got to be a disappointment.” He paused, considering it. “Or maybe not. Now you can throw yourself at me. Just not when Mack's around okay? He's not my dad, but he is the guy who busted me out of an orphan camp when I was ten.”
Kat Falls, Inhuman

M.F. Moonzajer
“There was a time, when we were illiterate, insane and inhuman, and we needed religion to control the masses for the good or evil, but now we are in the time of the technological advancement, we are educated and we must let go off religion.”
M.F. Moonzajer, LOVE, HATRED AND MADNESS

Gift Gugu Mona
“When people become inhuman, they degrade the true value of humanity.”
Gift Gugu Mona

Jeff VanderMeer
“There were five of them, and four had traded their eyes for green-gold wasps that curled into their sockets and compounded their vision. Claws graced their hands like sharp commas. Scales at their throats burned red when they breathed. One wing sighed bellows-like out of the naked back of the shortest, the one who still had slate-gray human eyes. After a while, I'd wished he had wasps instead.”
Jeff VanderMeer, Borne

Abhijit Naskar
“Aggression knows no distinction between human and inhuman action.”
Abhijit Naskar, Build Bridges not Walls: In the name of Americana

“An Inhuman, In Human.”
Syed Sharukh
