Camille Paglia
“Leaving sex to the feminists is like letting your dog vacation at the taxidermist.”
Camille Paglia

Henry Miller
“Everybody says sex is obscene. The only true obscenity is war.”
Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer

Arthur Rimbaud
“I understand, and not knowing how to express myself without pagan words, I’d rather remain silent”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell and The Drunken Boat

Joris-Karl Huysmans
“His contempt for humanity grew fiercer, and at last he came to realize that the world is made up mostly of fools and scoundrels. It became perfectly clear to him that he could entertain no hope of finding in someone else the same aspirations and antipathies; no hope of linking up with a mind which, like his own, took pleasure in a life of studious decrepitude; no hope of associating an intelligence as sharp and wayward as his own with any author or scholar.”
Joris-Karl Huysmans, Against Nature

Camille Paglia
“Charisma is the numinous aura around a narcissistic personality. It flows outward from a simplicity or unity of being and a composure and controlled vitality. There is gracious accommodation, yet commanding impersonality. Charisma is the radiance produced by the interaction of male and female elements in a gifted personality. The charismatic woman has a masculine force and severity. The charismatic man has an entrancing female beauty. Both are hot and cold, glowing with presexual self love.”
Camille Paglia
