„U mnoha lidí se láska k bližnímu omezuje na to dávat jim dobré rady, podle nichž by se sami nikdy neřídili.“

„Činy je třeba dokonat až do jejich úplného konce. Východisko může být jakékoli, konec bude krásný. Pouze nedokonané akce jsou podlé a nízké.“ Deník zloděje


„Kdo nezná zákony, připravuje se o potěšení je přestupovat.“

„Zdálo by se logické dovolávat se ďábla, ale toho by se žádný zloděj nikdy neodvážil. Paktovat se s ním by totiž znamenalo pustit se do něčeho velkého, zásadního, protože on se tak mocně staví na odpor bohu, že je jasné, že nakonec zvítězí s definitivní platností.“ Deník zloděje

„Worse than not realizing the dreams of your youth would be to have been young and never dreamed at all.“

„A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.“

„To achieve harmony in bad taste is the height of elegance.“

„I could not take lightly the idea that people made love without me.“ The Thief's Journal


„My heart's in my hand, and my hand is pierced, and my hand's in the bag, and the bag is shut, and my heart is caught.“ Our Lady of the Flowers

„She was happy, and perfectly in line with the tradition of those women they used to call "ruined," "fallen," feckless, bitches in heat, ravished dolls, sweet sluts, instant princesses, hot numbers, great lays, succulent morsels, everybody's darlings...“ Querelle of Brest

„If we behave like those on the other side, then we are the other side. Instead of changing the world, all we'll achieve is a reflection of the one we want to destroy.“ The Balcony

„I wanted to swallow myself by opening my mouth very wide and turning it over my head so that it would take in my whole body, and then the Universe, until all that would remain of me would be a ball of eaten thing which little by little would be annihilated: that is how I see the end of the world.“ Our Lady of the Flowers


„Anyone who hasn't experienced the ecstasy of betrayal knows nothing of ecstasy at all.“ Prisoner of Love

„They spent their time doing nothing... they let intimacy fuse them.“ Our Lady of the Flowers

„Erotic play discloses a nameless world which is revealed by the nocturnal language of lovers. Such language is not written down. It is whispered into the ear at night in a hoarse voice. At dawn it is forgotten.“ The Thief's Journal

„Ah those knock-out body fluids: blood, sperm, tears!“ Querelle of Brest
