"A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring"

A clusterfuck of philosophy, #menswear, art, music, literature, and monstrous children thereof

“All our time, all our life was ours. I mean, we had no job, nothing else to do but live. And he lived, my God, he lived.”

—Lucien Happersberger, James Baldwin’s lover, on their time in Paris (via avecsabombe)

“And above all no more object. Ecstasy is not love: love is possession for which the object is necessary, and at the same time possession of the subject, possessed by it. There is no longer subject-object, but a ‘yawning gap’ between the one and the other and, in the gap, the subject, the object are dissolved; there is passage, communication, but not from one to the other: the one and the other have lost their separate existence.”

—Georges Bataille, Inner Experience (via 1109-83)

'O Zarathustra, you stone of wisdom, you projectile, you star-destroyer! You have thrown yourself thus high, but every stone that is thrown — must fall!'

Thereupon the dwarf fell silent; and long he continued so. But his silence oppressed me; and to be thus in company is truly more lonely than to be alone…

But there is something in me that I call courage: it has always destroyed every discouragement in me. This courage bade me stop and say: ‘Dwarf! You! Or I!’

For courage is the best destroyer — courage that attacks: for in every attack there is a triumphant shout…

Courage also destroys giddiness at abysses: and where does man not stand at an abyss?

Courage destroys even death, for it says: ‘Was that life? Well then! Once more!’

—Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra (via sisyphean-revolt)
