Citáty Georges Bataille

„Kdo nevidí náboženský smysl erotiky, tomu uniká její podstata. Obráceně, kdo nevidí svazek, kterým je spojeno náboženství s erotikou, tomu unikne i podstata náboženství.“

„Občas potřebujeme svobodně uchopit svět. Bez pomyšlení na povinnosti, potřeby, nutnosti, tíži bytí. “

„Doufám, že je každý člověk schopen ztratit kontrolu sám nad sebou alespoň jednou v životě.“

„I believe that truth has only one face: that of a violent contradiction.“ Violent Silence: Celebrating Georges Bataille

„The need to go astray, to be destroyed, is an extremely private, distant, passionate, turbulent truth.“

„Nothing is more necessary or stronger in us than rebellion.“ The Unfinished System of Nonknowledge

„A kiss is the beginning of cannibalism.“

„Beauty is desired in order that it may be befouled; not for its own sake, but for the joy brought by the certainty of profaining it.“ Erotism: Death and Sensuality

„We have in fact only two certainties in this world - that we are not everything and that we will die.“

„I don't want your love unless you know i am repulsive, and love me even as you know it.“

„Incredible nervous state, trepidation beyond words: to be this much in love is to be sick (and I love to be sick).“ The Impossible

„To others, the universe seems decent because decent people have gelded eyes. That is why they fear lewdness. They are never frightened by the crowing of a rooster or when strolling under a starry heaven. In general, people savor the "pleasures of the flesh" only on condition that they be insipid.
But as of then, no doubt existed for me: I did not care for what is known as "pleasures of the flesh" because they really are insipid; I cared only for what is classified as "dirty." On the other hand, I was not even satisfied with the usual debauchery, because the only thing it dirties is debauchery itself, while, in some way or other, anything sublime and perfectly pure is left intact by it. My kind of debauchery soils not only my body and my thoughts, but also anything I may conceive in its course, that is to say, the vast starry universe, which merely serves as a backdrop.“
Story of the Eye

„In what will survive me
I am in harmony
with my annihilation.“

„The sexual act is in time what the tiger is in space.“

„Sovereignty, loyalty, and solitude.“ The Unfinished System of Nonknowledge

„I think that knowledge enslaves us, that at the base of all knowledge there is a servility, the acceptation of a way of life wherein each moment has meaning only in relation to another or others that will follow it.“ The Unfinished System of Nonknowledge
