Georges Bataille

***************

Sovereign beauty
cannot elude the rage of
tortured misfortune

***************

To place oneself in
a sexual position
with God is painful

***************

I dream of the fruit
of my moonlight ecstasy
with a befouled owl

***************

A saint is a worm
whose blood hides violent crimes
of morality

***************

Pleasure is only
intellectual despair
assenting to death

***************

The human species
is a terrifying thing
even for madmen

***************

Literature is
incomplete without the truth
of contradiction

***************

The purity of
rational calculation
is tainted thinking

***************

Eroticism is
a rebellion against love’s
deep incoherence

***************

Annihilation
is the impenetrable
essence of desire

***************

In order to go
astray it’s necessary
to poison meaning

***************
