Georges Bataille

French writer and philosopher
[Nietzsche's doctrine of the eternal return] is what makes moments caught up in the immanence of return suddenly appear as ends. In every other system, don't forget, these moments are viewed as means: Every moral system proclaims that "each moment of life ought to be motivated." Return unmotivates the moment and frees life of ends.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You perhaps now know that desire reduces us to pulp.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The preceding criticism ... justifies the following definition of the entire human: human existence as the life of "unmotivated" celebration, celebration in all meaning of the word: laughter, dancing, orgy, the rejection of subordination, and sacrifice that scornfully puts aside any consideration of ends, property, and morality.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My true church is a whorehouse – the only one that gives me true satisfaction.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To place oneself in the position of God is painful: being God is equivalent to being tortured. For being God means that one is in harmony with all that is, including the worst. The existence of the worst evils is unimaginable unless God willed them.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
