Marina Tsvetaeva
“There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river.”
Marina Tsvetaeva

Friedrich Nietzsche
“There is not enough love and kindness in the world to permit us to give any of it away to imaginary beings.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits

Henri Lefebvre
“Being satisfied: this is the general model of being and living whose promoters and supporters do not appreciate the fact that it generates discontent. For the quest for satisfaction and the fact of being satisfied presuppose the fragmentation of 'being' into activities, intentions, needs, all of them well-defined, isolated, separable and separated from the Whole. Is this an art of living? A style? No. It is merely the result and the application to daily life of a management technique and a positive knowledge directed by market research. The economic prevails even in a domain that seemed to elude it: it governs lived experience.”
Henri Lefebvre, Critique of Everyday Life

Ghérasim Luca
“Is it true, as is claimed
that after death man continues
a phantom existence
I'll let you know”
Ghérasim Luca, The Passive Vampire

Georges Bataille
“If literature stays away from evil, it rapidly becomes boring.”
Georges Bataille
