„Lidé si mylně domnívají, že dřívě či později se přece něco musí stát. To je hluboký omyl. Život může být docela dobře zároveň krátký i prázdný.“ Rozšíření bitevního pole

„Sexualita je výhradně zdrojem konfliktů, vraždění a utrpení.“


„Vzpomínám si, jak mi jedna asi padesátiletá žena, kterou jsem potkla v baru na pláži ve věku sedmnácti let, kdy jsem pronášel protichůdné a zmatené soudy o světě, řekla: „Uvidíte, jak člověk stárne, všechno je mnohem jednodušší.“ Jak jen měla pravdu!“ Rozšíření bitevního pole

„"Levice vždycky měla schopnost přimět lid aby přijal antisociální reformy, které by ostře odmítl, kdyby pocházely zprava."“ Podvolení

„Michel Houellebecq je geniální provokatér, mystifikátor , vizionář, rušitel, komplikovaný člověk. Smysl jeho umění je dráždit. A je také příznivcem pravice a socialisté ho štvou. -- Arnaud Desplechin“

„Sami sebe si uvědomujeme ve vztahu k druhým; právě proto je vztah s druhými nesnesitelný“ Platforma

„Láska, jakožto vzácný, umělý a pozdní jev může vzkvétat pouze za zvláštních a zřídkakdy současných podmínek, které jsou přímým protikladem uvolněnosti mravů, charakterizující moderní dobu.“ Rozšíření bitevního pole

„Potřebujeme dobrodružství a erotiku, protože potřebujeme, aby nám bylo neustále opakováno, že život je nádherný a vzrušující, o čemž samozřejmě dost pochybujeme. (Rozšíření bitevního pole).“


„Vnímám svou kůži jako hranici a okolní svět jako drtič.“

„Zvlášť kritizuji Zlo – jenže lidi myslí, že žertuji.“

„Youth was the time for happiness, its only season; young people, leading a lazy, carefree life, partially occupied by scarcely absorbing studies, were able to devote themselves unlimitedly to the liberated exultation of their bodies. They could play, dance, love, and multiply their pleasures. They could leave a party, in the early hours of the morning, in the company of sexual partners they had chosen, and contemplate the dreary line of employees going to work. They were the salt of the earth, and everything was given to them, everything was permitted for them, everything was possible. Later on, having started a family, having entered the adult world, they would be introduced to worry, work, responsibility, and the difficulties of existence; they would have to pay taxes, submit themselves to administrative formalities while ceaselessly bearing witness--powerless and shame-filled--to the irreversible degradation of their own bodies, which would be slow at first, then increasingly rapid; above all, they would have to look after children, mortal enemies, in their own homes, they would have to pamper them, feed them, worry about their illnesses, provide the means for their education and their pleasure, and unlike in the world of animals, this would last not just for a season, they would remain slaves of their offspring always, the time of joy was well and truly over for them, they would have to continue to suffer until the end, in pain and with increasing health problems, until they were no longer good for anything and were definitively thrown into the rubbish heap, cumbersome and useless. In return, their children would not be at all grateful, on the contrary their efforts, however strenuous, would never be considered enough, they would, until the bitter end, be considered guilty because of the simple fact of being. From this sad life, marked by shame, all joy would be pitilessly banished. When they wanted to draw near to young people's bodies, they would be chased away, rejected, ridiculed, insulted, and, more and more often nowadays, imprisoned. The physical bodies of young people, the only desirable possession the world has ever produced, were reserved for the exclusive use of the young, and the fate of the old was to work and to suffer. This was the true meaning of; it was a pure and simple holocaust of each generation in favor of the one that replaced it, a cruel, prolonged holocaust that brought with it no consolation, no comfort, nor any material or emotional compensation.“ The Possibility of an Island

„Those who love life do not read. Nor do they go to the movies, actually. No matter what might be said, access to the artistic universe is more or less entirely the preserve of those who are a little fed up with the world.“ H.P. Lovecraft: Against the World, Against Life


„The absence of the will to live is, alas, not sufficient to make one want to die.“

„Anything can happen in life, especially nothing.“ Platform

„People often say that the English are very cold fish, very reserved, that they have a way of looking at things – even tragedy – with a sense of irony. There’s some truth in it; it’s pretty stupid of them, though. Humor won’t save you; it doesn’t really do anything at all. You can look at life ironically for years, maybe decades; there are people who seem to go through most of their lives seeing the funny side, but in the end, life always breaks your heart. Doesn’t matter how brave you are, how reserved, or how much you’ve developed a sense of humor, you still end up with your heart broken. That’s when you stop laughing. In the end there’s just the cold, the silence and the loneliness. In the end, there’s only death.“ The Elementary Particles

„It's a curious idea to reproduce when you don't even like life.“ The Elementary Particles
