Kamand Kojouri
“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

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

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

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

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

“I won't go back to the darkness! I am going to live! Is it really so wrong of me to want to live?!”
Kafka Asagiri, 文豪ストレイドッグス 55Minutes [Bungō Stray Dogs 55 Minutes]

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

Abhijit Naskar
“Adjusting to inhumanity is an inhumanity itself.”
Abhijit Naskar, Aşkanjali: The Sufi Sermon

F.C. Yee
“...at the cost of sufficient effort, sometimes heroic, inhuman effort, things could get better over time.”
F.C. Yee, The Shadow of Kyoshi

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

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

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

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

Abhijit Naskar
“Consistent inhumanity is the sign of savagery.”
Abhijit Naskar, Revolution Indomable

“Welcome to the 21st century where love is now conditional, where those who are honest are betrayed, teared apart. A time where your faithfulness to someone is trashed. A time where your transparency to someone is just meaningless, a joke.”
Tinashe Hodhera

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

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

“I don't exist.”
The Fart Blast

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

Christina Engela
“Sometimes, the inhuman presents itself in troubling and unsettling ways, as human”
Christina Engela, Pearls Before Swine

“I am not surprised by evil. Rather, I am surprised by people who are surprised by it.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Kristen Ciccarelli
“A rippling murmur echoed through the grove behind her. Emeline turned to see people emerging from the shadows of the trees, gathering to cluster and stare. Clothed in leather and fine wool, delicate lace and soft silk, they held themselves with moonlit grace. Their eyes shone too bright and their shadows twisted behind them, hinting at other shapes.
They were... not quite human.
Remembering Tom's stories, Emeline knew this was the shiftling court.
I'm really here, she thought, resisting the urge to pinch herself. All the stories were true.
Kristen Ciccarelli, Edgewood

Claire Kohda
“An idea has formed in my mind. At university, I performed pieces where I'd sit on various materials that had long life spans, like plastic, trees, stone, and I gradually glued my skin to them, or else connected myself to the material with clay or plaster and painted the joins to look like the material---the bark of a tree, marble, cement. I wanted to look like I was a part of whatever material I was using and it was a part of me. I think that those works came from a kind of naive and youthful desire to be seen for what I was. For my body to be seen for what it is: this un-decaying, eternal thing---familiarly human, but also not.”
Claire Kohda, Woman, Eating
