1. "Maud laughed, drily. Roland said, "And then, really, what is it, what is this arcane power we have, when we see that everything is human sexuality? It's really powerlessness."Impotence," said Maud, leaning over, interested.I was avoiding that word, because that precisely isn't the point. We are so knowing. And all we've found out, is primitive sympathetic magic. Infantile polymorphous perversity. Everything relates to us and we're so imprisoned in ourselves - we can't see things."
Author: A.S. Byatt

"Hacía ya mucho tiempo que me vanagloriaba de poseer todos los paisajes posibles, y que se me antojaban irrisorias todas las celebridades de la pintura y de la poesía moderna.Me gustaban las pinturas idiotas: adornos de puertas, decorados, telones de saltimbancos, emblemas, estampas populares; la literatura pasada de moda: latín de iglesia, libros eróticos ignorantes de la ortografía, novelas de nuestras abuelas, cuentos de hadas, libritos infantiles, viejas óperas, estribillos bobos, ritmos ingenuos.Soñaba con cruzadas, viajes de exploración cuya crónica no nos ha llegado, repúblicas sin historia, guerras de religión sofocadas, revoluciones de costumbres, desplazamientos de razas y continentes: creía en todos los encantamientos."
Author: Arthur Rimbaud

7. "If we are to use the words ‘childish' and ‘infantile' as terms of disapproval, we must make sure that they refer only to those characteristics of childhood which we become better and happier by outgrowing. Who in his sense would not keep, if he could, that tireless curiosity, that intensity of imagination, that facility of suspending disbelief, that unspoiled appetite, that readiness to wonder, to pity, and to admire?"
Author: C.S. Lewis
8. "Here's a free tip," his father says: "The feds aren't terribly impressed by infantile egoism. In fact, if Objectivism were at the center of human philosophical discourse rather than the fringes, we wouldn't be here—the Big Zap would have arrived decades ago. But I'm going to be generous and let you write down the ghost of Ayn Rand as a brain fart. I won't bring her up again if you don't."
Author: Cory Doctorow
9. "And if you have any doubta," Peter added, "Corinithians overtly tells us that the parables have two layers of meaning: 'milk for babes and meat for men - where the milk is watered-down reading for infantile minds, and the meat is the true message, accessible only to mature minds."
Author: Dan Brown

Aku tidak suka!]"

Author: Frantz Fanon
15. "La politisation des masses n'est pas la mobilisation trois ou quatre fois l'an de dizaines ou de centaines de milliers d'hommes et de femmes. Ces meetings, ces rassemblements spectaculaires s'apparentent à la vieille tactique d'avant l'indépendance où l'on exhibait ses force pour se prouver à soi-même et aux autres qu'on avait le peuple avec soi. La politisation des masses se propose non d'infantiliser les masses mais de les rendre adultes."
Author: Frantz Fanon
16. "A cretiniza înseamna a-i rapi fiin?ei umane tot absolutul la care poate spera. Birocra?ii Bisericii au ucis absolutul cerului prin ritual ?i dogma. Birocra?ii societa?ii noastre fals democratice ne-au infantilizat în fa?a Raului amputându-i omului solitudinea tragica, înecându-l într-o mul?ime de activita?i "societale". Chiar ?i arta, ultima sursa de absolut, este domesticita: arti?tii sunt ni?te aparatciki în solda Ministerului Culturii, pictura moderna nu mai este decât un produs de capitalizare propus de bancheri, sculptura de avangarda, mobilier pentru holurile marilor banci... Iar poe?ii blestema?i de azi cotizeaza pentru pensia suplimentara!"
Author: Gabriel Osmonde

Author: Gianluca Frangella

Author: Herman Gorter
21. "Non puoi essere vagabondo e artista e contemporaneamente borghese e uomo sano e decoroso. Ti vuoi ubriacare, allora tieniti anche il mal di testa! Se dici di sì alla luce del sole e alle fantasie leggiadre, devi dire sì anche alla sporcizia e al disgusto. Tutto questo è in te, oro e fango, bramosia e pena, riso infantile e paura della morte.Dì a tutto sì , non sottrarti a niente, non tentare di eludere niente."
Author: Hermann Hesse
22. "Permanecí largo rato mirándole, y sentí entonces, lejos aún en mi subconsciente, algo muy singular. Vi que el rostro de Demian no solamente era el de un muchacho, sino el de un hombre, pero me pareció ver todavía algo más: era como si en él hubiera también algo de un rostro de una mujer, y además, por un instante, aquel rostro no me pareció ya viril o infantil, maduro o joven, sino, en cierto modo, milenario; en cierto modo, fuera del tiempo, marcado por edades distintas a la que nosotros vivimos. Los animales pueden presentar ese aspecto, o los árboles, o las estrellas. Yo no lo sabía. No sentí exactamente por entonces esto que ahora describo; pero sí algo semejante. Tampoco supe en forma clara si la figura de Demian me atraía o me repelía. Sólo vi que era distinto de nosotros, que era como un animal, o como un espíritu, o como una pintura; pero distinto, extrañamente distinto de todos nosotros."
Author: Hermann Hesse
23. "She gradually became aware of how dumb the damn show was she was watching and she stared at it, wondering how in the hell they could put anything so absurdly infantile and intellectually and esthetically insulting on television, and she started asking herself over and over how they could do it, what kind of nonsense this is, and she continued to stare and shake her head, more and more of her mind being absorbed by the absurdity she was watching, suddenly leaning back on the couch as a section of the show ended and a commercial came blaringly on and she stared at them too, wondering what sort of cretins watch this garbage and are influenced by it and actually go out and buy those things, and she shook her head, unbelievable, it is simply unbelievable, how can they manage to make so many obnoxious commercials, one right after the other?"
Author: Hubert Selby Jr.

Author: Jemima Khan
26. "The Genie declared that in his time and place there were scientists of the passions who maintained that language itself, on the one hand, originated in 'infantile pregenital erotic exuberance, polymorphously perverse,' and that conscious attention, on the other, was a 'libidinal hypercathexis' -- by which magic phrases they seemed to mean that writing and reading, or telling and listening, were literally ways of making love."
Author: John Barth
27. "Academics tend to have wonderfully infantile senses of humor."
Author: John Lithgow
28. "O artesão no seu trabalho não deve levantar-se ante o maior doutor, podemos imaginar com que orgulho profissional começava José a instruir os seus filhos mais velhos, um após outro, à medida que chegavam à idade, primeiro Jesus, depois Tiago, depois José, depois Judas, nos segredos e tradições da arte carpinteira, atento ele, também, à antiga sentença popular que assim reza, O trabalho do menino é pouco, mas quem o desdenha é louco, foi o que veio a chamar-se trabalho infantil."
Author: José Saramago
29. "Man is insatiable for power; he is infantile in his desires and, always discontented with what he has, loves only what he has not. People complain of the despotism of princes; they ought to complain of the despotism of man."
Author: Joseph De Maistre
30. "It is because of the Biblical curse on man's search for knowledge, which has so paralyzed his mind during the past ages, and its detrimental effect upon progress, that makes the Bible the most wicked, the most detestable, the most pernicious, and the most obnoxious book ever published. It has been a curse to the human race.It is the duty of every brave and honest man and woman to do everything in his and her power to destroy the influence of this utterly stupid and vicious book, with its infantile concept of life and its nonsense concerning the universe. It is their duty to do everything within their power to stop its demoralizing and paralyzing influence upon the life of man.We will never achieve intellectual liberty until the wickedness of this book has been discarded with the belief in the flatness of the earth."
Author: Joseph Lewis
31. "... la alegría infantil de sumergirse en una conversación inesperada con un completo desconocido para descubrirse, horas después -y bajo toneladas hipercalóricas de "¿leíste a tal?". "¡Sí! ¿Y leíste a tal?". "¡Sí! ¿Y leíste a tal?"-, pensando que ése, sí, es el comienzo de una gran amistad."
Author: Leila Guerriero
32. "L'espressione infantile del viso, unitamente alla delicata bellezza del busto, componevano il suo particolare incanto, che lui ben ricordava; ma quello che in lei lo coglieva sempre di sorpresa era l'espressione degli occhi, miti, tranquilli e sinceri, e in particolare il suo sorriso, che trasportava sempre Levin in un mondo incantato, dove lui si sentiva ingentilito e intenerito, come poteva ricordare di essere lui stesso in rari giorni della sua prima infanzia"
Author: Leo Tolstoy
33. "Morala constituie pentru arta o primejdie pe care multi o subestimeaza, arta se apropie mai mult de natura, prin cruzimea ei infantila, decat morala, care e creatia spiritului uman matur, impins de nevoia de a pune ordine in viata afectiva si de a tine in frau instinctele. Uneori, ea devine necrutatoare,tinzand la suprimarea totala a instinctelor, ca si cand fara ele fiinta umana ar putea supravietui."
Author: Marin Preda
34. "Cosmetic surgery is not "cosmetic," and human flesh is not "plastic." Even the names trivialize what it is. It's not like ironing wrinkles in fabric, or tuning up a car, or altering outmoded clothes, the current metaphors. Trivialization and infantilization pervade the surgeons' language when they speak to women: "a nip," a "tummy tuck."...Surgery changes one forever, the mind as well as the body. If we don't start to speak of it as serious, the millennium of the man-made woman will be upon us, and we will have had no choice."
Author: Naomi Wolf
35. "O processo de identificação é infantil, mas não é inteiramente ingênuo, porque não pode ocupar toda a minha mente. Enquanto parte de minha mente está criando gente de ficção, falando e agindo como meus heróis e em geral tentando se colocar na pele de outra pessoa, outra parte está cuidadosamente avaliando o romance como um todo - supervisionando a composição, imaginando como o leitor vai ler, interpretando a narrativa e os atores e tentando prever o efeito de minhas frases. Todos esses cálculos sutis, envolvendo o aspecto planejado do romance e o lado sentimental-reflexivo do romancista, revelam uma auto consciênciaque está em direto contraste com a ingenuidade da infância. Quanto mais o romancista consegue ser, ao mesmo tempo, ingênuo e sentimental, melhor ele escreve."
Author: Orhan Pamuk
36. "..luxury is the enemy of observation, a costly indulgence that induces such a good feeling that you notice nothing. Luxury spoils and infantilizes you and prevents you from knowing the world. That is its purpose, the reason why luxury cruises and great hotels are full of fatheads who, when they express an opinion, seem as though they are from another planet. It was also my experience that one of the worst aspects of travelling with wealthy people, apart from the fact that the rich never listen, is that they constantly groused about the high cost of living – indeed, the rich usually complained of being poor."
Author: Paul Theroux
37. "Leaves that rustled, twigs that scraped and rattled. But the thin shapes weren't falling, they were scurrying head first down the tree-trunks at a speed that seemed to leave time behind. Some of them had no shape they could have lived with, and some might never have had any skin. She saw their shriveled eyes glimmer eagerly and their toothless mouths gape with an identical infantile hunger. Their combined weight bowed the lowest branches while they extended arms like withered sticks to snatch the child. ("With The Angels")"
Author: Ramsey Campbell
38. "Ah! I wish I had the courage to work for the debasement of my contemporaries. What good work it would be to defile their daughters: to insinuate something obscene into the infantile hands which caress each paternal beard and cheek; to poison them, even at the risk of perishing ourselves; to do as those Spanish monks did, who drank death in order that they might persuade the French rabble which had violated their monastery to do likewise."
Author: Remy De Gourmont
39. "Isaac Asimov's remark about the infantilism of pseudoscience is just as applicable to religion: 'Inspect every piece of pseudoscience and you will find a security blanket, a thumb to suck, a skirt to hold.' It is astonishing, moreover, how many people are unable to understand that 'X is comforting' does not imply 'X is true'."
Author: Richard Dawkins
40. "Training is a good dog, a constant companion and an utterly loyal and devoted friend, and everyone should have one. Education is a nagging counselor. And, I am convinced, everyone does have one. It happens, however, that some nagging counselors have grown strong by a certain kind of nourishment. Others are weak and puny, even infantile, having never been nourished at all."
Author: Richard Mitchell
41. "I'm just a very primitive, infantile folk singer."
Author: Robert Wyatt
42. "In my Future of an Illusion I was concerned [...] with what the ordinary man understands by his religion, that system of doctrines and pledges that on the one hand explains the riddle of this world to him with an enviable completeness, and on the other assures him that a solicitous Providence is watching over him and will make up to him in a future existence for any shortcomings in this ife. The ordinary man cannot imagine this Providence in any other from but that of a greatly exalted father, for only such a one could understand the needs of the sons of men, or be softened by their prayers and placated by the signs of their remorse. The whole thing is so patently infantile, so incongruous with reality, that to one whose attitude to humanity is friendly it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise about this view of life."
Author: Sigmund Freud
43. "The sheer size too, the excessive abundance, scale, and exaggeration of dreams could be an infantile characteristic. The most ardent wish of children is to grow up and get as big a share of everything as the grown-ups; they are hard to satisfy; do not know the meaning of ‘enough."
Author: Sigmund Freud
44. "Hiphop has remained in an infantile stage and has not been allowed to grow."
Author: Slick Rick
45. "Psychoanalysis provides truth in an infantile, that is, a schoolboy fashion: we learn from it, roughly and hurriedly, things that scandalize us and thereby command our attention. It sometimes happens, and such is the case here, that a simplification touching upon the truth, but cheaply, is of no more value than a lie. Once again we are shown the demon and the angel, the beast and the god locked in Manichean embrace, and once again man has been pronounced, by himself, not culpable."
Author: Stanisław Lem
46. "Alcohol is used by millions of people, both men and women, and I will make no friends by taking the position that alcohol culture is not politically correct. Yet how can we explain the legal toleration for alcohol, the most destructive of all intoxicants, and the almost frenzied efforts to repress nearly all other drugs? Could it not be that we are willing to pay the terrible toll that alcohol extracts because it is allowing us to continue the repressive dominator style that keeps us all infantile and irresponsible participants in a dominator world characterized by the marketing of ungratified sexual fantasy?"
Author: Terence McKenna
47. "The Kantian imperative to have the courage to think for oneself has involved a contemptuous disregard for the resources of tradition and an infantile view of authority as inherently oppressive."
Author: Terry Eagleton
48. "War as a moral metaphor is limited, limiting, and dangerous. By reducing the choices of action to "a war against" whatever-it-is, you divide the world into Me or Us (good) and Them or It (bad) and reduce the ethical complexity and moral richness of our life to Yes/No, On/Off. This is puerile, misleading, and degrading. In stories, it evades any solution but violence and offers the reader mere infantile reassurance. All too often the heroes of such fantasies behave exactly as the villains do, acting with mindless violence, but the hero is on the "right" side and therefore will win. Right makes might."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
49. "For my nymphet I needed a diminutive with a lyrical lilt to it. One of the most limpid and luminous letters is "L". The suffix "-ita" has a lot of Latin tenderness, and this I required too. Hence: Lolita. However, it should not be pronounced as you and most Americans pronounce it: Low-lee-ta, with a heavy, clammy "L" and a long "o". No, the first syllable should be as in "lollipop", the "L" liquid and delicate, the "lee" not too sharp. Spaniards and Italians pronounce it, of course, with exactly the necessary note of archness and caress. Another consideration was the welcome murmur of its source name, the fountain name: those roses and tears in "Dolores." My little girl's heartrending fate had to be taken into account together with the cuteness and limpidity. Dolores also provided her with another, plainer, more familiar and infantile diminutive: Dolly, which went nicely with the surname "Haze," where Irish mists blend with a German bunny—I mean, a small German hare."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "It is an infantile superstition of the human spirit that virginity would be thought a virtue and not the barrier that separates ignorance from knowledge."
Author: Voltaire

On page 607, alluding to the end of my first marriage (and carefully remembering to state that that's none of his business), he very sweetly says that I 'might leave a wife, but not a friend.' Nice try. Neat smear. But he shouldn't be so sure...."
