Georges Bataille

Georges Bataille

French writer and philosopher
[F]or academic men to be happy, the universe would have to take shape. All of philosophy has no other goal: it is a matter of giving a frock coat to what is, a mathematical frock coat. On the other hand, affirming that the universe resembles nothing and is only formless amounts to saying that the universe is something like a spider or spit.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Intellectual despair results in neither weakness nor dreams, but in violence. It is only a matter of knowing how to give vent to one's rage; whether one only wants to wander like madmen around prisons, or whether one wants to overturn them.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
At man's core there is a voice that wants him never to give in to fear. But if it is true that in general man cannot give in to fear, at the very least he postpones indefinitely the moment when he will have to confront himself with the object of his fear... when he will no longer have the assistance of reason as guaranteed by God, or when he will no longer have the assistance of God such as reason guaranteed. It is necessary to recoil, but it is necessary to leap, and perhaps one only recoils in order to leap better.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Though the immediate impression of rebellion may obscure the fact, the task of authentic literature is nevertheless only conceivable in terms of a desire for fundamental communication with the reader.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Entirety exists within me as exuberance ... in empty longing ... in ... the desire to burn with desire.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
