Clementine von Radics
“I wonder if you know yet that you’ll leave me. That you are a child playing with matches and I have a paper body. You will meet a girl with a softer voice and stronger arms and she will not have violent secrets or an affection for red wine or eyes that never stay dry. You will fall into her bed and I’ll go back to spending Friday nights with boys who never learn my last name. ”
Clementine von Radics

Suzanne Collins
“Finally, he can see me for who I really am. Violent. Distrustful. Manipulative. Deadly. And I hate him for it.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

Eduardo Galeano
“Hay criminales que proclaman tan campantes ‘la maté porque era mía’, así no más, como si fuera cosa de sentido común y justo de toda justicia y derecho de propiedad privada, que hace al hombre dueño de la mujer. Pero ninguno, ninguno, ni el más macho de los supermachos tiene la valentía de confesar ‘la maté por miedo’, porque al fin y al cabo el miedo de la mujer a la violencia del hombre es el espejo del miedo del hombre a la mujer sin miedo.”
Eduardo Hughes Galeano

Tiffany Madison
“[On Schopenhauer in Black and White] Schopenhauer's views of love are flawed. Love can't be merely an illusion of the mind to aid in procreation, but the path to redemption for an otherwise violently selfish species. Past human greatness has proven that when challenged, love can overpower impulsive instinct, and in essence, the vilest aspects of our nature.”
Tiffany Madison

Ilona Andrews
“Just stay close to us. If we get in trouble, we'll kill everything.”

Violent love eats up what it does love, and is mere appetite.
Maria McCann, As Meat Loves Salt

Mango Wodzak

Mango Wodzak, The Eden Fruitarian Guidebook

Elizabeth Hoyt
“Val turned, still naked, still impossibly beautiful. Only the gore spattered on his belly, chest, and arm, marred his perfection.
He walked toward her and she couldn't help it. She backed away from him.
He smiled.
Sweetly. Like a boy. The dagger still in his left hand. And caught her arm with his right hand.
"This is who I am, Séraphine. Naked, with blade and blood. I am vengeance. I am hate. I am sin personified. Never mistake me for the hero of this tale, for I am not and shall never be. I am the villain."
And he laid his lips over hers and pushed his hot tongue into her mouth and kissed her until she couldn't breathe and it was only later that she found the bloodstains on her dress.

Her lips had been sweet, like ripe figs, her mouth a cavern of delight. But her eyes- those dark inquisitor's eyes- had held only horror and disgust.
Val sipped his China tea the next morning and gazed out the window. The sun shone on his garden, giving the illusion of warmth, though his empty chest was ice-cold.
He could have explained to her that a razor-sharp blade was kinder than a hangman's noose. That death delivered in seconds with a few thrusts was preferable to a laughing, jabbering mob, gleeful at the jerking, agonizing execution.
But those saint's eyes would've seen the hypocrisy.”
Elizabeth Hoyt, Duke of Sin

“Violence is the result of hatred & greed conquering the heart of lesser souls.”
Rehan Waris

DaShanne Stokes

“The Gun Stops Here
(What Gandhi meant but never said)”
Vineet Raj Kapoor

Catherine Lacey
“Someone said once that they'd never heard of a crime they couldn't imagine committing, and I realized then that if I had a daughter and she had a rabbit and that rabbit was alone with me and I was feeling the way I felt right now and I had a way to kill that rabbit and the time to spend killing that rabbit then killing the rabbit was something I could imagine myself possibly doing or at least considering doing or being on the edge of doing. And smearing a husband with the blood wasn't such a far step after that if you had a desire to smear your husband with blood and smearing someone with blood was something I could imagine a situation calling for because there were at least a few people in this world that I wouldn't not like to see smeared with blood—one person being Werner for fucking my plans, for sending me back out into a life with my wildebeest, to figure out a way to live here and I didn't want to do that and I didn't know how to do that and I wasn't sure how I was going to do that—”
Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing

Tarif Naaz
“Occupation maybe means when army of another country enters our country and refuses to return to their country on one pretext or other. To me occupation does also not mean when the army is at the border, but occupation is when the army knocks at our doors, enters our homes, kills our brothers, rape our sisters and the whole fucking world is silent. Occupation to me is when you need 7 lacs forces to kill 258 militants. To me occupation also means when you need bullets against stones. Occupation is also when you don't die once but several times everyday, when you don't have dreams but long last Nightmares. Occupation is also when a country launches a vicious campaign to present you, as a whole community, terrorists before the fucking world for justifying their violent suppression and other punitive measures.”
Tarif Naaz

Jonathan Marker
“A shot rang out from the rifle of an alerted Harvestman, and just as the sound reached Nathaniel’s ears, he felt the hot streak of a bullet pierce his left arm, spattering blood on the ground before him.”
Jonathan Marker, SPYDER SYLK

Warren Ellis
“ON PLAYING back the 911 recording, it’d seem that Mrs. Stegman was more concerned that the man outside her apartment door was naked than that he had a big shotgun.”
Warren Ellis, Gun Machine

Dada Bhagwan

Awdhesh Singh, Myths are Real, Reality is a Myth

“The Seashell :-

As I stepped into the sea waves ,
I got drifted into our friendship and no longer remembered about going back to the sea shore.

The moment you held my hand in your hand amidst the sea my fear of sinking under it wiped out like that of sand houses on the sea shore under the violent waves and I bathed in your pearly love , my seashell.

Swim with me till those stream lines where there's no trace of the sea shore and I will submerge and breath in them with you as a mermaid till eternity.
