Favorite Sadism Quotes

1. "Sadism is not an infectious disease that strikes a person all of a sudden. It has a long prehistory in childhood and always originates in the desperate fantasies of a child who is searching for a way out of a hopeless situation."
Author: Alice Miller
2. "The wounded child inside many males is a boy who, when he first spoke his truths, was silenced by paternal sadism, by a patriarchal world that did not want him to claim his true feelings. The wounded child inside many females is a girl who was taught from early childhood that she must become something other than herself, deny her true feelings, in order to attract and please others. When men and women punish each other for truth telling, we reinforce the notion that lies are better. To be loving we willingly hear the other's truth, and most important, we affirm the value of truth telling. Lies may make people feel better, but they do not help them to know love."
Author: Bell Hooks
3. "La guerre, c'est la discipline. La sujétion maximale. L'esclavage. C'est l'une des situations où l'homme est le plus soumis à l'homme et a le moins d'issues pour y échapper. Il est empoigné. Réquisitionné. Ballotté par des ordres mécaniques. Objet d'un sadisme sans réplique. Exposé à l'humiliation ou au feu. Numéroté. Broyé. Astreint à la corvée. Pris dans des mouvements collectifs très lents, trè...s obscurs, parfaitement indéchiffrables, qui, au plus naturellement rebelle, ne laissent d'autre choix que de se plier. La guerre c'est la circonstance, par excellence, où joue ce pouvoir de laisser vivre et de faire mourir qui est, selon les bons philosophes, le propre du pouvoir absolu. L'homme de guerre c'est le dernier des hommes, c'est-à-dire l'esclave absolu.(Réflexions sur la Guerre, le Mal et la fin de l'Histoire)"
Author: Bernard Henri Lévy
4. "The crowd laughs at the parody. Weep, ladies, over your own fate, when you see the misery of imprisoned matter, of tortured matter which does not know what it is and why it is, nor where the gesture may lead that has been imposed on it forever.The crowd laughs. Do you understand the terrible sadism, the exhilarating, demiurgical cruelty of that laughter? Yet we should weep, ladies, at our own fate, when we see that misery of violated matter, against which a terrible wrong had been committed."
Author: Bruno Schulz
5. "Sadism dominates the culture. It runs like an electric current through reality television and trash-talk programs, is at the core of pornography, and fuels the compliant, corporate collective. Corporatism is about crushing the capacity for moral choice and diminishing the individual to force him or her into an ostensibly harmonious collective. This hypermasculinity has its logical fruition in Abu Ghraib, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and our lack of compassion for our homeless, our poor, the mentally ill, the unemployed, and the sick. ... We accept the system handed to us and seek to find a comfortable place within it. We retreat into the narrow, confined ghettos created for us and shut our eyes to the deadly superstructure of the corporate state."
Author: Chris Hedges
6. "As the many male victims of rape in the regime's disgusting jails can testify, this state-run pathology of sexual repression and sexual sadism is not content to degrade women only."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
7. "Hate is strewn like confetti by the fear-fueled, specious, tiny- dicked (or un-tender) vacuous dictators, of any gender, whom never knew true love, only sadism. They ALL need some good pharma."
Author: Elizabeth Lucye Robillard
8. "There began to appear before my romantic eyes...a vast and complicated network of espionage, terror, sadism and hate, from which no one, official or private, could escape."
Author: Erik Larson
9. "The sadism is part of your charm." - William Maddox"
Author: Jennifer DeLucy
10. "They burn books now, mama.The monsters burn fucking books now, mama. They have eyes full of disappointing madness. Their tongues taste like fulvous indoctrination. They teach us. Teach us sadism, hatred, lust to kill, conformity. What do you see when you look at me? Daddy?"
Author: Laura Gentile
11. "There is no rest for the humble except in despising the great, whose only thought of the people is inspired by self-interest or sadism."
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
12. "Y al final resultaba que ser soldado de la patria no era precisamente defender el suelo, las fronteras, la famosa dignidad nacional, de los fueros civiles el goce defendamos el código fiel, no, ser soldado de la patria, mejor dicho, coronel de la patria, era joder a los muchachos, visitar al embajador, joder a los obreros, recibir la visita del subsecretario del secretario del embajador, joder a uno que otro cabecilla, dejar que los estimados colaboradores de esta Jefatura den rienda suelta a su sadismo en vías de desarrollo, insultar, agraviar, joder, siempre joder, y en el fondo también joderse a sí mismo."
Author: Mario Benedetti
13. "When I was a baby feminist, leading feminist thinkers were insisting that if women ran the world, there would be no sadism or war."
Author: Naomi Wolf
14. "Los españoles también abusan de las expresiones fuertes. Frente a ellos el mexicano es singularmente pulcro. Pero mientras los españoles se complacen en la blasfemia y la escatología, nosotros nos especializamos en la crueldad y el sadismo. El español es simple: insulta a Dios porque cree en él. La blasfemia, dice Manchado, es una oración al revés. El placer que experimentan muchos españoles, incluso algunos de sus más altos poetas, al aludir a los detrimentos y mezclar la mierda con lo sagrado se parece un poco al de los niños que juegan con lodo. […] El "hijo de la chingada" es el engendro de la violación, del rapto o la burla. SI se compara esta expresión con la española, "hijo de puta", se advierte inmediatamente la diferencia. Para el español la deshonra consiste en ser hijo de una mujer que voluntariamente se entrega, una prostituta; para el mexicano, es ser fruto de una violación."
Author: Octavio Paz
15. "Once it was the fashion to represent villages as places inhabited by laughable, livable simpletons, unspotted by the worldliness of city life, though occasionally shrewd in rural concerns. Later it was the popular thing to show villages as rotten with vice, and especially such sexual vice...incest, sodomy, bestiality, sadism, and masochism were supposed to rage behind lace curtains and in the haylofts, while a rigid piety was professed in the streets."
Author: Robertson Davies
16. "[At the scene of a murder]The cats' bloodthirst was normal; it was the way God had made them. They were hunters, they killed for food and to train their young--well maybe sometimes for sport. But this violent act by some unknown human had nothing to do with hunting--for a human to brutally maim one of the own kind out of rage or sadism or greed was, to Joe and Dulcie (the cats), a shocking degradation of the human condition. To imagine that vicious abandon in a human deeply distressed Dulcie; she did not like thinking about humans that way."
Author: Shirley Rousseau Murphy
17. "Any man who has ever led an army, an expedition, or a group of Boy Scouts has sadism in his bones."
Author: Tahir Shah
18. "— Dizem que é um sociopata, porque não encontraram mais nenhum termo que pudessem aplicar a ele. Tem algumas das características que atribuem a um sociopata. Não tem qualquer sentimento de remorso ou de culpa. E apresentou o primeiro e o pior dos indicadores: sadismo para com os animais quando era criança.— Mas não apresenta mais nenhuma das outras características — continuou Graham. — Não era um desenraizado e não apresentava nenhum histórico de problemas com a lei. Não era mesquinho e explorador nas pequenas coisas, como são a maioria dos sociopatas. Não é insensível. Não sabem como é que devem classificá-lo. Os seus encefalogramas mostram alguns padrões estranhos, mas não conseguiram tirar conclusões a esse respeito."
Author: Thomas Harris
