In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the highest and most mendacious minute of "world history" -- yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die.Rate this quote: Send
One might invent such a fable and still not have illustrated sufficiently how wretched, how shadowy and flighty, how aimless and arbitrary, the human intellect appears in nature. There have been eternities when it did not exist; and when it is done for again, nothing will have happened.

As anyone can tell you, I'm not an agreeable person: I don't even know what that means. I've always admired the baddies, the outlaws, the sons of bitches. I don't like perfectly shaven men, with a tie and a good job. I like desperate men, with broken teeth, with the brain in pieces and a disgusting life. I'm interested in them. They're full of surprises. I also have a small spot for sluts, for those who get drunk and swear, that have loose tights and smudged make-up. I'm more interested in perverts than saints. I relax with stoners because I'm a stoner too. I don't like laws, morale, religions, rules. I don't want to be moulded by society.
All that which is greatly thought upon is a source of doubt.
