1. "Our strength consists in our speed and in our brutality. Genghis Khan led millions of women and children to slaughter—with premeditation and a happy heart. History sees in him solely the founder of a state. It's a matter of indifference to me what a weak western European civilization will say about me. I have issued the command—and I'll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad—that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formation in readiness—for the present only in the East—with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (Lebensraum) which we need. Who, after all, speaks to-day of the annihilation of the Armenians?"
Author: Adolf Hitler
2. "For a politics of emancipation, the enemy that is to be feared most is not repression at the hands of the established order. It is the interiority of nihilism, and the unbounded cruelty that can come with its emptiness."
Author: Alain Badiou
3. "That my philosophy of life is, as far as possible, one of enjoyment. I'm not nihilistic."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
4. "In order to deal with the fear of annihilation you have to face annihilation again and again and again. It's not enough just to understand this intellectually. It's not enough just to read about this. You need to watch yourself being annihilated right now. If you can manage to sit quietly as you disappear from existence moment by moment, then you can see it's really nothing to be afraid of. You gotta meditate. Nobody likes to hear that. But it's true."
Author: Brad Warner
5. "The fatal error of much science fiction has been to subscribe to an optimism based on the idea that revolution, or a new gimmick, or a bunch of strong men, or an invasion of aliens, or the conquest of other planets, or the annihilation of half the world--in short, pretty nearly anything but the facing up to the integral and irredeemable nature of mankind--can bring about utopian situations. It is the old error of the externalization of evil."
Author: Brian W. Aldiss
6. "Svaka knjiga, svaki svezak koji vidiš, ima dušu. Dušu onoga koji ju je napisao i onih koji su je citali, proživjeli i uz nju sanjarili. Svaki put kada knjiga prijede iz ruke u ruku, svaki put kad netko pogledom preleti njezine stranice, njezin duh raste i snaži se."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
7. "He [Tom Avery] is acutely, palpably afraid of Friday nights, what to do with them, those gaping, sneering, and stubbornly recurring widths of time - how to accommodate them, fill them, use them, annihilate them. He'd do anything to sidestep a Friday night. Friday nights demand conviviality and expenditure. It's the time to let loose (yeah, sure)."
Author: Carol Shields
8. "Here too was the terrifying fixed curve of the infinite, the creeping curve of logic which at least must become the final signpost at the edge of nothing. After that - the deluge. The great white light of annihilation. The bright flash of death... ("Mr. Arcularis")"
Author: Conrad Aiken
9. "Beše to jedan od onih dana koji ne donesuNišta novo, ali nas zaduže u vecnosti."
Author: Dejan Aleksic
10. "Verovao sam da je tuga za voljenim bicem najteža patnja. Sada znam da je nocna hladnoca u rovu teža od svih duševnih patnji.Verovao sam da su muka mišljenja, tajna, duhovni problema najteži coveku. Sad znam da coveku ništa nije teže od nespavanja. Verovao sam da je istina najznacajnija za život, a sada sam siguran da je hleb- najprece u životu."
Author: Dobrica Cosic
11. "Osecanje, za koje nemam imena, obuzelo mi je dušu – osecanje koje se opire analizi, kojem su znanja iz davnih vremena neprimerena, i za koje mi, zebem, ni sama buducnost nece prutiti kljuc. Za duhovni sklop kao što je moj, kobno je ovo drugo saznanje. Necu nikad – znao sam da necu nikad – dokuciti prirodu tih svojih misli. Ipak, nije sasvim cud-no što su ove moje misli neodreCene, jer poticu iz sasvim novih izvora. Novi osecaj – ne-ka nova suština – uvecali su mi dušu"
Author: Edgar Allan Poe

Author: Ellen Hopkins
13. "Tupo navikavanje, onošto je maleno i nisko, ispunjavajuci sve kutove sveta, kao težak zemni vazduh dimeci se oko svega što je veliko, ometajuci, obmanjujuci, ublažavajuci, gušeci, otežava put kojim ono što je veliko ima da ide ka besmrtnosti. Taj put, medutim, vodi kroz ljudske mozgove! Kroz mozgove zastrašenih i kratkovecnih životinja koje se stalno iznova pojavljuju radi istih nevolja i s naporom neznatno vreme odbijaju od sebe propast. Jer, one u prvom redu hoce samo jedno: da žive po svaku cenu. Ko bi kod njih naslutio onu tešku trku luconoša monumentalne istorije zahvaljujuci kojoj ono što je veliko dalje živi!"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
14. "Strahov jeze in ljubosumnosti, ki izmalicijo osebnost, ne moremo razumevati loceno od karmicnih okolišcin, zaradi katerih so. Ko razumete in resnicno razumete, da so izkušnje vašega življenja potrebne za uravnoteženje energije vaše duše, imate vso svobodo, da se ne odzivate nanje osebno, da ne ustvarjate vec negativne karme za svojo dušo."
Author: Gary Zukav
15. "Razvojni proces, do katerega prihaja na ravni posameznika, je isti proces, ki se odvija na ravni medsebojnih odnosov med posamezniki. Ko posameznik vnese energijo pralika duhovnega partnerstva, to ne vpliva na partnerstvo, ki ga oblikuje z drugim posameznikom, ampak tudi na skupnost, narod in cel svet. Vaša odlocitev, da se se boste razvijali zavestno odgovorno z izbiro, prispeva ne samo k vaši lastni evoluciji, ampak tudik evoluciji vseh tistih vidikov cloveštva, v katerih sodelujete. S svojimi odlocitvami se ne razvijate samo vi, marvec celotno cloveštvo."
Author: Gary Zukav
16. "(visions) of strange cities, of sandy plains, of gigantic ruins, of midnight skies with strange bright constellations, of mountain-passes, of grassy nooks flecked with the afternoon sunshine through the boughs: I was in the midst of such scenes, and in all of them one presence seemed to weigh on me in all these mighty shapes - the presence of something unknown and pitiless. For continual suffering had annihilated religious faith within me: to the utterly miserable - the unloving and the unloved - there is no religion possible, no worship but a worship of devils. And beyond all these, and continually recurring, was the vision of my death - the pangs, the suffocation, the last struggle, when life would be grasped at in vain. ("The Lifted Veil")"
Author: George Eliot
17. "The girl with dark hair was coming towards them across the field. With what seemed a single movement she tore off her clothes and flung them disdainfully aside. Her body was white and smooth, but it aroused no desire in him, indeed he barely looked at it. What overwhelmed him in that instant was admiration for the gesture with which she had thrown her clothes aside. With its grace and carelessness it seemed to annihilate a whole culture, a whole system of thought, as though Big Brother and the Party and the Thought Police could all be swept into nothingness by a single splendid movement of the arm. That too was a gesture belonging to the ancient time. Winston woke up with the word ‘Shakespeare' on his lips."
Author: George Orwell
18. "Death never mattered at those times - in the early days I even used to pray for it: the shattering annihilation that would prevent for ever the getting up, the putting on of clothes, the wathchign her torch trail across to the opposite side of the common like the tail-light of a low car driving away."
Author: Graham Greene
19. "There can be no rebirth without a dark night of the soul, a total annihilation of all that you believed in and thought that you were."
Author: Hazrat Inayat Khan
20. "Nije skrivala bilo kakve uznemirujuce tajne; što god se moglo ljudski ubiti, ona bi ubila. Mogla je tako beskrajno poživjeti, jednako kao i mjesec, kao bilo koja mrtva planeta koja zraci hipnotickim sjajem, diže plimu strasti, nagoni svijet u ludilo, svojim magnetskim, metalnim zracima oduzima boju svim zemaljskim stvarima. Sijuci vlastitu smrt, prenosi na svakoga paklensku groznicu. U odvratnoj mirnoci svog sna obnovila je vlastitu magnetsku smrt u dodiru s hladnom magmom pustih planetarnih svjetova."
Author: Henry Miller
21. "Sleep is no longer a healing bath, a recuperation of vital forces, but an oblivion, a nightly brush with annihilation."
Author: J.M. Coetzee
22. "...evil is a force and, like the physical and chemical forces, we cannot annihilate it; we may only change its form. We light upon one evil and hit it with all the might of our civilization, but only succeed in scattering it into a dozen of other forms"
Author: James Weldon Johnson
23. "Her family had of late been exceedingly fluctuating. For many years of her life she had had two sons; but the crime and annihilation of Edward a few weeks ago, had robbed her of one; the similar annihilation of Robert had left her for a fortnight without any; and now, by the resurrection of Edward, she had one again."
Author: Jane Austen
24. "There exist concretely alarm clocks, signboards, tax forms, policemen, so many guard rails against anguish. But as soon as the enterprise is held at a distance from me, as soon as I am referred to myself because I must await myself in the future, then I discover myself suddenly as the one who gives its meaning to the alarm clock, the one who by a signboard forbids himself to walk on a flower bed or on the lawn, the one from whom the boss's order borrows its urgency, the one who decides the interest of the book which he is writing, the one who finally makes the values exist in order to determine his action by their demands. I emerge alone and in anguish confronting the unique and original project which constitutes my being; all the barriers, all the guard rails collapse, nihilated by the consciousness of my freedom."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
25. "Suffering is always hard to quantify - especially when the pain is caused by as cruel a disease as Alzheimer's. Most illnesses attack the body; Alzheimer's destroys the mind - and in the process, annihilates the very self."
Author: Jeffrey Kluger
26. "The existing system will be quickest and most radically overthrown by the annihilation of its exponents. Therefore, massacres of the enemies of the people must be set in motion."
Author: Johann Most
27. "He lived within himself, nourished by his own substance, like some torpid creature which hibernates in caves. Solitude had reacted upon his brain like a narcotic. After having strained and enervated it, his mind had fallen victim to a sluggishness which annihilated his plans, broke his will power and invoked a cortège of vague reveries to which he passively submitted.The confused medley of meditations on art and literature in which he had indulged since his isolation, as a dam to bar the current of old memories, had been rudely swept away, and the onrushing, irresistible wave crashed into the present and future, submerging everything beneath the blanket of the past, filling his mind with an immensity of sorrow, on whose surface floated, like futile wreckage, absurd trifles and dull episodes of his life."
Author: Joris Karl Huysmans
28. "When a man sees a dying animal, horror comes over him: that which he himself is, his essence, is obviously being annihilated before his eyes--is ceasing to be. But when the dying one is a person, and a beloved person, then, besides a sense of horror at the annihilation of life, there is a feeling of severance and a spiritual wound which, like a physical wound, sometimes kills and sometimes heals, but always hurts and fears any external, irritating touch."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
29. "What Hamlet suffers from is a lack of zombies. Let us say Rosencrantz and Guildenstern show up—Ho-HO! Now you've got something that stirs the, um, something that stirs things that are stirrable. BOOM! A pack of ravenous flesh-eaters breaks open their heads and sucks out their eyeballs. No need for iambic pentameter because they are grunting, groaning annihilators of humanity with no time for meter. You're not asleep in the back of English class anymore, are you? This is what I'm talking about. Zombies. Learn it, live it, love it."
Author: Libba Bray
30. "His actions had saved three US cities from annihilation but only a few very high-ranking people knew it. Fairfax was just pleased he could still wear jeans and sneakers to work."
Author: Matthew Reilly
31. "Cuvala me, i pored svega, onakvog kakav sam bio u njenim snovima. Carobnjacki me sastavljala od razbijenih komada, možda i ne primecujuci pukotine"
Author: Meša Selimović
32. "Scientists are skeptics. It's unfortunate that the word 'skeptic' has taken on other connotations in the culture involving nihilism and cynicism. Really, in its pure and original meaning, it's just thoughtful inquiry."
Author: Michael Shermer
33. "Pikirkan 'nihareem' padang pasir, bidadari-bidadari iblis ini membingungkan pelancong yanh letih, membelokannya dari jalannya dengan lampu-lampu terang mereka pada malam hari. Tertipu, mengira dia telah menemukan sebuah kota atau penginapan, pasir yang luas, mati kehausan atau tenggelam dalam pasir hisap - Hakim Mehdad"
Author: Mike Carey
34. "S onima koji ne umru slucajno stvari stoje ovako: prerezanih žila umiru žene i homoseksualci, metak u glavu ispale vojnici i grubijani, tabletama se dokrajce glumci i romanticari, u srce pucaju nespretnjakovici i neurotici, vješaju se neobaviješteni i perverznjaci, s mostova skacu slavohlepni i slabici, s krovova i visokih katova skacu ocajnici i teoreticari."
Author: Miljenko Jergović
35. "Canda dan Tawa adalah salah satu cara untuk membuat kita berfikir lebih jernih dari sebelumnya."
Author: Mochamad Fathurizqon Mutiudin
36. "Ako ja, ma kako se na to gledalo, sa svog licnog gledista bacim, razdvojivsi samoga sebe, pogled na onog mladog covjeka kakav sam tada bio, treba da se zalim, sto me sudbina nije rodila pomalo niktovom, i ne mogu se utjesiti zbog svog prevelikog postenja. Ne bih li ja, naprotiv, sve bio dao, da u sebi izbrisem svako iskustvo, da opet imam svoju djetinju dusu i da s njome zivim u cistoci? To moje JA, sto ga svi poznajete, ne zaboravite, to je uprljano svom necistocom zivota. Ako je istina, da covjek moze izvuci neki ponos iz hrpe onih godina koje je prozivio u necistoci, tad me, pristajem, nazovite svojim starijim bratom."
Author: Natsume Sōseki
37. "Nite, ti si živ. To znaci da je tvoj potencijal bezgranican. Možeš uciniti, stvoriti, sanjati što god poželiš. Ako ti promijeniš svijet, on ce se doista promijeniti. To je potencijal. Cim umreš, potencijal nestaje. Gotovo je. Što si napravio, napravio si, svoj san si odsanjao, svoje ime ispisao. Možda te sahrane ovdje, možda cak postaneš jedan od onih koji hodaju i poslije smrti. Ali potencijala više nece biti."
Author: Neil Gaiman
38. "An animal will kill, but never to completely annihilate a race, a whole collectively. What does this make us in this world?"
Author: Philip Gourevitch
39. "Fat heard in her rational tone the harp of nihilism, the twang of the void."
Author: Philip K. Dick
40. "Nakon što sam obranio doktorat, majka bi me s velikim zadovoljstvom predstavljala ovim rijecima: »Ovo je moj sin. On je doktor, ali ne od onih koji pomažu ljudima.«"
Author: Randy Pausch
41. "Tijekom mog lijecenja, kada sam doznao da samo cetiri posto oboljelih od raka gušterace živi pet godina, pala mi je na pamet fraza iz jednog filma o Zvjezdanim stazama, Khanov gnjev. U filmu se prikazuju kadeti Flote koji se na simulatoru suocavaju sa situacijom u kojoj bez obzira na njihove napore pogiba cjelokupna posada. Kada je Kirk bio kadet, reprogramirao je simulaciju jer »nije vjerovao u scenarij bez mogucnosti pobjede«.U kasnijim godinama neki od mojih profinjenih akademskih kolega s prezirom su gledali na moju opcinjenost Zvjezdanim stazama. Ali ja dobro znam koliko mi je to poslužilo. Nakon sto je Shatner doznao za moju dijagnozu, poslao mi je svoju fotografiju kao kapetana Kirka. Na njoj je pisalo: »Ne vjerujem u scenarij bez mogucnosti pobjede.«"
Author: Randy Pausch
42. "Qu'est-ce que le nihilisme ? Rozanov répond parfaitement à la question quand il écrit : "La représentation est terminée. Le public se lève. Il est temps d'enfiler son manteau et de rentrer à la maison. On se retourne : plus de manteau ni de maison."
Author: Raoul Vaneigem
43. "Nearly all people stand in great horror of annihilation, and yet to give up your individuality is to annihilate yourself. Mental slavery is mental death, and every man who has given up his intellectual freedom is the living coffin of his dead soul. In this sense, every church is a cemetery and every creed an epitaph."
Author: Robert G. Ingersoll
44. "Specificity refers to the ability of any medicine to discriminate between its intended target and its host. Killing a cancer cell in a test tube is not a particularly difficult task: the chemical world is packed with malevolent poisons that, even in infinitesimal quantities, can dispatch a cancer cell within minutes. The trouble lies in finding a selective poison—a drug that will kill cancer without annihilating the patient. Systemic therapy without specificity is an indiscriminate bomb. For an anticancer poison to become a useful drug, Meyer knew, it needed to be a fantastically nimble knife: sharp enough to kill cancer yet selective enough to spare the patient."
Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee
45. "In theory, sure, Gregor could still go home. Pack up his three-year-old sister, Boots, get his mom out of the hospital, where she was recovering from the plague, and have his bat, Ares, fly them back up to the laudry room of their appartment building in New York City. Ares, his bond, who saved his life numerous times and who had had nothing but suffering since he had met Gregor. He tried to imagine the parting. "Well, Ares, it's been great. I'm heading home now. I know by leaving I'm completely dooming to annihilation everbody who's helped me down here, but I'm really not up for this whole war thing anymore. So, fly you high, you know?" Like that would ever happen."
Author: Suzanne Collins
46. "You are twenty. You are not dead, although you were dead. The girl who died. And was resurrected. Children. Witches. Magic. Symbols. Remember the illogic of the fantasy. The strange tableau in the closet behind the bathroom: the feast, the beast, and the jelly-bean. Recall, remember: please do not die again. Let there be continuity at least - a core of consistency - even if your philosophy must be always a moving dynamic dialectic. The thesis is the easy time, the happy time. The antithesis threatens annihilation. The synthesis is the consummate problem."
Author: Sylvia Plath
47. "They would set their course toward it, seeing it grow bigger silently and imperceptibly, a motionless growth--and then, when they were at it, when they were about to bang their noses with a shock against its seeming solid mass, the sun would dim. Wraiths of mist suddenly moving like serpents of the air would coil about them for a second. Grey damp would be around them, and the sun, a copper penny, would fade away. The wings next to their own wings would shade into vacancy, until each bird was a lonely sound in cold annihilation, a presence after uncreation. And there they would hang in chartless nothing, seemingly without speed or left or right or top or bottom, until as suddenly as ever the copper penny glowed and the serpents writhed."
Author: T.H. White
48. "Tacno je da sam srecan samo u kolima, izmedu mesta sa kojeg sam krenuo i mesta ka kojem sam se uputio. Srecan sam samo kada putujem. Kada stignem, nebitno gde, odjednom postajem najnesrecnije moguce bice. U suštini, ja sam jedno od onih stvorenja koja ne mogu da podnesu da se nalaze bilo gde i srecna su samo izmedu mesta. Godinama sam verovao da ce me takvo katastrofalno stanje neizbežno odvesti u potpuno ludilo, kojega sam se pribojavao celog života."
Author: Thomas Bernhard
49. "You may take my purse; but I cannot have my moral Self annihilated. The purse is any Highwayman's who might meet me with a loaded pistol: but the Self is mine and God my Maker's; it is not yours; and I will resist you to the death, and revolt against you ..."
Author: Thomas Carlyle
50. "Namun itu berarti bahwa telah tumbuhlah benih-benih pengakuan, bahwa yang benar-benar penting dalam sejarah justru adalah hidup sehari-hari, yang normal yang biasa, dan bukan pertama-tama kehidupan serba luar biasa dari kaum ekstravagan serba mewah tapi kosong konsumtif. Dengan kata lain, kita mulai belajar, bahwa tokoh sejarah dan pahlawan sejati harus kita temukan kembali di antara kaum rakyat biasa yang sehari-hari, yang barangkali kecil dalam harta maupun kuasa, namun besar dalam kesetiaannya demi kehidupan.[Impian dari Yogyakarta, hlm. 38]"

Today's Quote

The most absurd thing of the whole affair was that we were never engaged. He just started showing up Sunday after Sunday and now expected to marry me. I never went out alone (or chaperoned) with him anywhere, I never even smiled at him. If that is all it takes to be engaged then I could have been married off to a hedgehog if it showed up everySunday."
