Favorite Tormento Quotes

1. "As her psychosis took hold she moved deeper and deeper into the house, putting as much distance as possible between herself and the outside world. This became her world. To begin with it was just a few rooms. Then it contracted down to just this one, and then to just this tank. Even that wasn't enough. She constructed barriers to fool and delay the ghosts. Corridors that don't lead anywhere, or which spiral back on themselves. Hidden stairways that they won't see. Mirrors everywhere, to baffle and confuse her tormentors. Doors that open onto walls. Of course, even that isn't sufficient by itself. The ghosts are clever and resourceful, and they'll keep trying to find a way in. That's why the house has to keep changing, so that they never get used to one particular configuration."
Author: Alastair Reynolds
2. "Aproximou-se certo dia de uma fonte clara como prata e não contaminada pelo gado, pelo pássaros, pelas feras nem pelos ramos caídos das arvores próximas. Narciso, sentando-se, exausto, na margem daquela fonte, logo se enamorou de sua própria imagem. Primeiro tentou abraçar e beijar o belo jovem que tinha diante de si; depois, reconheceu a si mesmo e permaneceu horas fixando o espelho da água da fonte como se encantado. O amor lhe era, ao mesmo tempo, concedido e negado; ele se consumia de dor e, ao mesmo tempo, gozava de seu tormento sabendo que, ao menos, não trairia a si próprio, acontecesse o que acontecesse."
Author: Aldo Carotenuto
3. "Ah, gods, hope. Our savior and our tormentor, the price and ferry pass for the dreams that carry us to the future."

4. "Olvídate de que podrás alcanzar alguna vez lo que llaman "normalidad sexual", ni esperes que el amor te traiga paz. El sexo es el acto de las tinieblas y el enamoramiento la reunión de los tormentos. Nunca esperes que lograrás comprensión con el sexo opuesto. No hay nada más disímil ni menos dado a la reconciliación. Tú, practica el miedo, el rapto, la pugna, la violencia, la perversión y la vía anal, si crees que la satisfacción depende de la estrechez y de la posición predominante. Si deseas sustraerte a todo comercio sexual, aun mejor.Para el odio que te ha infectado el censor, no hay remedio mejor que el asesinato.Para la timidez, la autodestrucción."
Author: Andrés Caicedo
5. "El sexo es el acto de las tinieblas y el enamoramiento la reunión de los tormentos."
Author: Andrés Caicedo
6. "Yo me comprometo a vivir con intensidad y regocijo, a no dejarme vencer por los abismos del amor, ni por el miedo ni por el olvido, ni siquiera por el tormento de una pasión contrariada. Me comprometo a recordar, a conocer mis yerros, a bendecir mis arrebatos. Me comprometo a perdonar los abandonos, a no desdeñar nada de todo lo que me conmueva, me deslumbre, me quebrante, me alegre. Larga vida prometo, larga paciencia, historias largas. Y nada abreviaré que deba sucederme: ni la pena ni el éxtasis para que cuando sea viejo tenga como deleite la detallada historia de mis días."
Author: Ángeles Mastretta
7. "He said cruelty was the devil's own trade-mark, and if we saw any one who took pleasure in cruelty we might know who he belonged to, for the devil was a murderer from the beginning, and a tormentor to the end. On the other hand, where we saw people who loved their neighbors, and were kind to man and beast, we might know that was God's mark."
Author: Anna Sewell
8. "He said that cruelty was the devil's own trade mark, and if we saw any one who took pleasure in cruelty, we might know who he belonged to, for the devil was a murderer from the beginning, and a tormentor to the end. On the other hand, where we saw people who loved their neighbours, and were kind to man and beast, we might know that was God's mark, for "God is Love"
Author: Anna Sewell

11. "MotivoEu canto porque o instante existee a minha vida está completa.Não sou alegre nem sou triste:sou poeta.Irmão das coisas fugidias,não sinto gozo nem tormento.Atravesso noites e diasno vento.Se desmorono ou se edifico,se permaneço ou me desfaço,— não sei, não sei. Não sei se ficoou passo.Sei que canto. E a canção é tudo.Tem sangue eterno a asa ritmada.E um dia sei que estarei mudo:— mais nada."— Cecília Meireles"
Author: Cecília Meireles

Author: Deepak Chopra

Author: Elie Wiesel

Author: Filipe Russo
15. "I myself will perhaps cry out with all the rest, looking at the mother embracing her child's tormentor: ‘Just art thou, O Lord!' but I do not want to cry out with them. While there's still time, I hasten to defend myself against it, and therefore I absolutely renounce all higher harmony. It is not worth one little tear of even that one tormented child who beat her chest with her little fist and prayed to ‘dear God' in a stinking outhouse with her unredeemed tears!"
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
16. "River smiled sweetly at his tormentors and told them, "If you want to kick my ass, go ahead. Just explain to me why you're doing it."After a confused pause, one of the skinheads said, "Ah, you wouldn't be worth it.""We're all worth it, man," River said with a beatific smile. "We're all worth millions of planets and stars and galaxies and universes."
Author: Gavin Edwards
17. "What you are lies with you. If you are lazy, and accept your lot, you may live in it. If you are willing to work, you can write your name anywhere you choose, among the only ones who live beyond the grave in this world, the people who write books that help, make exquisite music, carve statues, paint pictures, and work for others. Never mind the calico dress, and the coarse shoes. Work at you books, and before long you will hear yesterday's tormentors boasting that they were once classmates of yours."
Author: Gene Stratton Porter

Author: Gillian Shields
19. "Scrivo in uno stato di tensione insostenibile. Fra poco sarà l'alba e, allora, io non esisterò più. Privo d'ogni mezzo, privo della droga che — sola — mi ha consentito fino ad oggi di sopravvivere ai miei incubi, non mi rimane altro modo per sottrarmi al tormento: mi getterò dall'alta finestra di questa soffitta, nella squallida strada sottostante."
Author: H.P. Lovecraft
20. "Se questo mondo fosse un piano infinito e navigando a oriente noi potessimo sempre raggiungere nuove distanze e scoprire cose più dolci e nuove di tutte le Cicladi o le Isole del Re Salomone, allora il viaggio conterrebbe una promessa. Ma, nell'inseguire quei lontani misteri di cui sogniamo, o nella caccia tormentosa di quel fantasma demoniaco che prima o poi nuota dinanzi a tutti i cuori umani, nella caccia di tali cose intorno a questo globo, esse o ci conducono in vuoti labirinti o ci lasciano sommersi a metà strada."
Author: Herman Melville
21. "Non fa nessuna differenza, salvo un piccolo particolare, che per me ad ogni modo è di massima importanza. Che io senta la vita guizzare in me, sia essa sulla lingua o nelle suole, sia nella voluttà o sia nel tormento, che la mia anima sia mobile e possa insinuarsi con cento giuochi della fantasia in cento forme, in parroci e viandanti, in cuoche e assassini, in fanciulli e animali, in particolare in uccelli ed anche in alberi, questo è essenziale, questo voglio e di questo ho bisogno per vivere, e se un giorno tutto questo non dovesse più essere, se la mia vita dovesse essere inquadrata nella cosidetta "realtà", allora preferirei morire."
Author: Hermann Hesse
22. "El que haya gustado los otros días, los malos, los de los ataques de gota o los del maligno dolor de cabeza clavado detrás de los globos de los ojos, y convirtiendo, por arte del diablo, toda actividad de la vista y del oído de una satisfacción en un tormento, o aquellos días de la agonía del espíritu, aquellos días terribles del vacío interior y de la desesperanza, en los cuales, en medio de la tierra destruida y esquilmada por las sociedades anónimas, nos salen al paso, con sus muecas como un vomitivo, la humanidad y la llamada cultura con su fementido brillo de feria, ordinario y de hojalata, concentrado todo y llevado al colmo de lo insoportable dentro del propio yo enfermo; el que haya gustado aquellos días infernales, ése ha de estar muy contento con estos días normales y mediocres como el de hoy [...]."
Author: Hermann Hesse
23. "Solitude is an interesting companion. It is both enemy and friend, comforter and tormentor. I spent a lot of time in Dun Cinzci's meat locker trying to decide which. Fortunately, when I tired of solitude, I had guilt to keep me company. Guilt is an even more interesting acquaintance than solitude, let me tell you. Solitude is a harsh but essentially benign attendant. Guilt, on the other hand, is a living, breathing creature, cruel and remorseless. It eats you from the inside out; devours what little hope you have left. It feeds on you, growing stronger with every accursed replayed memory, every useless recrimination." ~ Cayal, The Immortal Prince"
Author: Jennifer Fallon
24. "Exageras tudo e, por certo, cometes pelo menos o erro de aceitar o suicídio, que é do que estamos falando agora, como se fosse uma grande ação, quando não é nada mais do que simplesmente fraqueza. Pois, para ser sincero, é mais fácil morrer do que suportar com firmeza uma vida de tormentos."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
25. "Mi propio mundo, uno que es caleidoscopio, alucinada dimensión del sueño, morada de la musaraña. El otro (el dominio de la realidad), llego a mi a través de los hombres. Ellos fueron mis portavoces, mis guías y a la vez mis obstáculos, mis tormentos y matarratos."
Author: Josefina Barron
26. "El infierno no necesitaba piscinas de fuego para ser tormentoso. El tiempo y la soledad bastaban."
Author: Josephine Angelini
27. "He'd gone from being just my tormentor to being my tormentor and protector, though I needed protection from nothing but him."
Author: Kitty Thomas
28. "She believed, and was entitled to believe, I must say, that all human beings were evil by nature, whether tormentors or victims, or idle standers-by. They could only create meaningless tragedies, she said, since they weren't nearly intelligent enough to accomplish all the good they were meant to do."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
29. "The paradox of vengefulness is that it makes men dependent upon those who have harmed them, believing that their release from pain will come only when they make their tormentors suffer. In seeking the Bird's death to free himself, Louie had chained himself, once again, to his tyrant. During the war, the Bird had been unwilling to let go of Louie; after the war, Louie was unable to let go of the Bird."
Author: Laura Hillenbrand
30. "It's just that instead of erupting and annihilating our tormentors, we destroy ourselves instead."
Author: Laura Wiess
31. "Sim, é só isso', refletiu Dária Aleksandrovna, ao recordar sua vida naqueles quinze anos de casamento, 'gravidez, enjoo, pensamento embotado, indiferença a tudo e, principalmente, feitura. (...) O parto, o sofrimento, um sofrimento horrendo, aquele último minuto... (...)'E tudo isso para quê? No que vai dar, tudo isso? Vai dar em que eu, sem ter um só minuto de tranquilidade, ora grávida, ora amamentndo, sempre irritada, rabugenta, um peso para mim mesma e um tormento para os outros, e também repulsiva para o meu marido, vou consumindo a minha vida e criando filhos infelizes, mal-educados e indigentes."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
32. "Te amo. Amo cada parte de ti, cada pensamiento y cada palabra ... todo el complicado y fascinante manojo de cosas que eres. Te quiero con diez tipos diferentes de necesidad a la vez. Amo todos tus estados, la forma en que eres ahora, la idea de cuánto mas bella serás en las próximas décadas. Te amo por ser la respuesta a cada pregunta que mi corazón pueda formular.Todos los fuegos de infierno podrían arder durante mil años y eso no igualaría lo que siento por ti en un minuto del día. Te amo tanto que no hay ningún placer en ello. Nada más que tormento. Porque si pudiera diluir lo que siento por ti a una millonésima parte, todavía sería lo suficiente como para matarte. E incluso si esto me vuelve loco, preferiría verte vivir en los brazos de ese bastardo frío y sin alma antes que morir en lo míos.Kev Merripen"

34. "Duras são as sementes do Cusculí, mas irão trazer para os seus sonhos as bocas ansiosas que receberam o seu sabor agridoce no tempo do amor. Ásperas são as sementes do Urucuzeiro, mas a sua polpa vermelha adornou as caras e os corpos das eleitas. Dolorosas são as sementes da Yahuasca, porque talvez assim disfarcem a doçura do licor que produzem e que bebido, com a ajuda dos velhos sábios, dissipa o tormento das dúvidas sem entregar as respostas, antes enriquecendo a ignorância do coração"
Author: Luis Sepúlveda

37. "And when pain bites, men bargain. Boys too. We twist and turn, we plead and beg, we offer our tormentors what he wants so that the hurting will stop. And when there is no torturer to placate, no hooded man with hot irons and tongs, just a burn you can't escape, we bargain with God, or ourselves, depending on the size of our egos."
Author: Mark Lawrence
38. "When pain bites, men bargain. Boys too. We twist and turn, we plead and beg, we offer our tormentor what he wants so that the hurting will stop. And when there is no torturer to placate, no hooded man with hot irons and tongs, just a burn you can't escape, we bargain with God, or ourselves, depending on the size of our egos....Take the pain, I said, and I will be a good man. Or if not that, a better man. We all become weasels with enough hurt on us. But I think a small part of it was more than that. A small part was the terrible two-edged sword called experience, cutting away at the cruel child I was, carving out whatever man might yet to come. I promised a better one. Thought I have been known to lie."
Author: Mark Lawrence
39. "Elf made his way fuzzily back to the drawer, trying to think nasty thoughts about his tormentor (Mungo the dog) but he couldn't, as he was too little and his mind was formless and without messages.( "Elf" the tiny kitten Mungo tormented )"

Author: Martin Luther
41. "Shall each man," cried he, "find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and I be alone? I had feelings of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn. Man! You may hate, but beware! Your hours will pass in dread and misery, and soon the bolt will fall which must ravish from you your happiness forever. Are you to be happy while I grovel in the intensity of my wretchedness? You can blast my other passions, but revenge remains—revenge, henceforth dearer than light or food! I may die, but first you, my tyrant and tormentor, shall curse the sun that gazes on your misery. Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful. I will watch with the wiliness of a snake, that I may sting with its venom. Man, you shall repent of the injuries you inflict."
Author: Mary Shelley
42. "I had seen how in an instant, those you called friends could suddenly become tormentors, sniffing out a weakness or a difference, turning their own fear of ostracism into a weapon with which they could beat the victim away, afraid that being an outsider, and individual even, was somehow infectious."
Author: Meera Syal

Author: Patricia Briggs
44. "You're poisonous, toxic, bad for my health. You're greedy, sly, way too stealth. You hurt me, use me, mistreat and abuse me. But your apologetic eyes, As you tell your lies, Draw me back in, And I forgive every sin. I take you back, Your love is my crack. I'm clearly a masochist, You're my personal terrorist. My tormentor, My lover, My bully, My friend."
Author: Penelope Douglas
45. "If there was a light at the end of the tunnel, the flickering bulb above my head wasn't it. The faces of my tormentors were no angels—they were hell's minions and I'd stepped into their purgatory."
Author: Susan Illene
46. "To me, my husband was my son's murderer. He was also my daughter's molester. A parasite nibbling on the Holy Book, he was Lucifer, holding me by the throat and driving me to sin every night. He was Bhai's destroyer, Amma Sain's tormentor, Ma's humbler and the people's exploiter. He was the rapist of orphans and the fiend that fed on the weak. But over and above all this, he was known to be the man closest to Allah, the one who could reach Him and save us."
Author: Tehmina Durrani
47. "En el fondo, el mundo, desde dondequiera que lo miremos, se compone de insoportabilidad. El mundo nos resulta cada vez más insoportable.

Author: Thomas Bernhard

Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "Jesus is both a mirror to our humanity and a window to divinity, a window revealing as much of God as is given mortal eyes to see. When Christians see Christ empowering the weak, scorning the powerful, healing the wounded, and judging their tormentors, we are seeing transparently the power of God at work."
Author: William Sloane Coffin
