Thomas Hobbes

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

The Papacy is
an empire of secret thoughts
and obscene desires

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

A man’s religion
may be erroneous; so
also his judgment

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

Lust is immortal,
and the fruit thereof is the
privilege of flesh

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

Prudence is nothing
but glory arising from
the chains of virtue

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

The inclination
of all mankind is toward
perpetual death

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

Gluttony endures
storms of conscience to voyage
on seas of pleasure

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

The earth itself is
a commodious prison
of gravitation

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

Absurdity is
the mother of heresy
and profane laughter

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

We endure the grave
authority of nature
with restless horror

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

Not believing in
art is not believing in
the future of time

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