Lady Gaga
“This is the Manifesto of Little Monster
There is something heroic about the way my fans operate their cameras. So precisely, so intricately and so proudly. Like Kings writing the history of their people, is their prolific nature that both creates and procures what will later be percieved as the kingdom. So the real truth about Lady Gaga fans, my little monsters, lies in this sentiment: They are the Kings. They are the Queens. They write the hisory of the kingdom and I am something of a devoted Jester. It is in the theory of perception that we have established our bond, or the lie I should say, for which we kill. We are nothing without our image. Without our projection. Without the spiritual hologram of who we percieve ourselves to be or rather to become, in the future.
When you are lonely,
I will be lonely too.
And this is the fame.”
Lady Gaga

D.H. Lawrence
“I WANT her though, to take the same from me.
She touches me as if I were herself, her own.
She has not realized yet, that fearful thing, that
I am the other,
she thinks we are all of one piece.
It is painfully untrue.

I want her to touch me at last, ah, on the root and
quick of my darkness
and perish on me, as I have perished on her.

Then, we shall be two and distinct, we shall have
each our separate being.
And that will be pure existence, real liberty.
Till then, we are confused, a mixture, unresolved,
unextricated one from the other.
It is in pure, unutterable resolvedness, distinction
of being, that one is free,
not in mixing, merging, not in similarity.
When she has put her hand on my secret, darkest
sources, the darkest outgoings,
when it has struck home to her, like a death, "this is _him!_"
she has no part in it, no part whatever,
it is the terrible _other_,
when she knows the fearful _other flesh_, ah, dark-
ness unfathomable and fearful, contiguous and concrete,
when she is slain against me, and lies in a heap
like one outside the house,
when she passes away as I have passed away
being pressed up against the _other_,
then I shall be glad, I shall not be confused with her,
I shall be cleared, distinct, single as if burnished in silver,
having no adherence, no adhesion anywhere,
one clear, burnished, isolated being, unique,
and she also, pure, isolated, complete,
two of us, unutterably distinguished, and in unutterable conjunction.

Then we shall be free, freer than angels, ah, perfect.


AFTER that, there will only remain that all men
detach themselves and become unique,
that we are all detached, moving in freedom more
than the angels,
conditioned only by our own pure single being,
having no laws but the laws of our own being.

Every human being will then be like a flower, untrammelled.
Every movement will be direct.
Only to be will be such delight, we cover our faces
when we think of it
lest our faces betray us to some untimely fiend.

Every man himself, and therefore, a surpassing
singleness of mankind.
The blazing tiger will spring upon the deer, un-dimmed,
the hen will nestle over her chickens,
we shall love, we shall hate,
but it will be like music, sheer utterance,
issuing straight out of the unknown,
the lightning and the rainbow appearing in us
unbidden, unchecked,
like ambassadors.

We shall not look before and after.
We shall _be_, _now_.
We shall know in full.
We, the mystic NOW.

(From the poem the Manifesto)”
D.H. Lawrence

Tristan Tzara
“Every page should explode, either because of its staggering absurdity, the enthusiasm of its principles, or its typography.”
Tristan Tzara, Manifesti del dadaismo

Jeanette LeBlanc
“Go now, and live.
Experience. Dream. Risk. Close your eyes and jump. Enjoy the freefall. Choose exhilaration over comfort. Choose magic over predictability. Choose potential over safety. Wake up to the magic of everyday life. Make friends with your intuition. Trust your gut. Discover the beauty of uncertainty. Know yourself fully before you make promises to another. Make millions of mistakes so that you will know how to choose what you really need. Know when to hold on and when to let go. Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek knowledge. Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart open, your head high and your spirit free. Embrace your darkness along with your light. Be wrong everyday once in a while, and don't be afraid to admit it. Awaken to the brilliance in ordinary moments. Tell the truth about yourself no matter what the cost. Own your reality without apology. See goodness in the world. Be Bold. Be Fierce. Be Grateful. Be Wild, Crazy and Gloriously Free. Be You.
Go now, and live.”
Jeanette LeBlanc

“Manifesto. Read my Manifesto. I`ve written a Manifesto. It`s all in the Manfesto!”
Theodore Kaczynski

Israelmore Ayivor
“If you can't do it, don't pledge to do it. Don't be a liar; say only what you can do. It's better for you to have a "single sentence" manifesto about your life which is fulfilled than to have 25 chapters' theories about your visions that remain undone!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Kate Elliott
“We dispute the arbitrary distribution of power and wealth, which is claimed as the natural order, but which is in fact not natural at all but rather artificially created and sustained by ancient privileges.”
Kate Elliott, Cold Fire

Hugo Ball
“Why can't a tree be called Pluplusch?”
Hugo Ball

R.M. Engelhardt
“Remember. Materialism is just another bullshit faith. Poetry is fucking alchemy.”
R.M. Engelhardt, The Bones of Our Existence, A Journal 2046

“Uma sociedade plural é muito melhor do que uma sociedade em que todos pensam igual. Sem divergências, nada evolui - nem o pensamento, nem o país.”
Martha Medeiros, Doidas e santas

Amanda Mosher
“Your love is the platform for my passion manifesto.”
Amanda Mosher, Better to be able to love than to be loveable

Milan Kundera
“She spoke about it with such emphasis (somewhat affected) that I could see at once that I was hearing the manifesto of her generation. Every generation has its own set of passions, loves, and interests, which it professes with a certain tenacity, to differentiate it from older generations and to confirm itself in its uniqueness. Submitting to a generation mentality (to this pride of the herd) has always repelled me. After Miss Broz had developed her provocative argument (I've now heard it at least fifty times from people her age) that all mankind is divided into those who give hitchhikers lifts (human people who love adventure) and those who don't (inhuman people who fear life), I jokingly called her a "dogmatist of the hitch." She answered sharply that she was neither dogmatist nor revisionist nor sectarian nor deviationist, that those were all words of ours, that we had invented them, that they belonged to us, and that they were completely alien to them.”
Milan Kundera, The Joke

“As the flesh gets in the way of our ideals, we regulate ourselves unto enslavement and inhumanity.
The human spirit then dies and the animal in us returns.”
Earl Warhus, Buddha's Cross

Ljupka Cvetanova
“Capitalist manifesto : Profiteers of the world, unite!”
Ljupka Cvetanova, The New Land

“There is no clear boundary between mental health and mental illness. Psychological complaints exist on continua with normal behaviours and experiences. Where we draw the line between sanity and madness is a matter of opinion.”
Richard P. Bentall, Madness Explained: Psychosis and Human Nature

Israelmore Ayivor
“In His manifesto, Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit of God to us when He ascended into the Kingdom above. He fulfilled this mission. Mission accomplished! Great people make plans and promises that they yearn to fulfill. Keep your eyes on the goals you set to accomplish; let them be done as planned!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“Print is dead. Long live print.”
Resurrection House

Sharon Kirstin
“When you tune into your soul essence and are in harmony with the Supreme, you are tapped into your superpowers.”
Sharon Kirstin, The Answers Within

“I have decided to always respond to anything concerning me, even if I am not directly asked, or ESPECIALLY HEN I AM NOT DIRECTLY ASKED, because I cannot allow others to create my story for me.”
Krysia (ja)

“We sing lyrical excess, exacerbated expressionism, imponed objectivity,
inventiveness, meta-baroque, extravaganza, super metaphor, sublimity, strident, exposure, super-pone, noise, super-objectivity, zillionism, fragmentation and aesthetics of facts, suractivism.”
Lepota L. Cosmo

“Facts produce structures, objects are lyrical realities.”
Lepota L. Cosmo

“Tensurrealism creates actual and non-compromised reality, jamboree, fervor, fascination, poetics of an active enthusiasm, interludium, lyrical practice, active happiness.”
Lepota L. Cosmo

Tamara K. Walker
“Irreality is my reality complete with the negligent malevolence of society that everyone else plays for novelty to make a hollow existential point that I manifest flesh.”
Tamara K. Walker

“Ancient people expressed their ideas through dialogues. Medieval people expressed their ideas through disputations. Modern people expressed their ideas through manifestos. Contemporary people express their ideas through temper tantrums.”
Jakub Bożydar Wiśniewski
