E.M. Cioran

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

Consciousness is a
concession to the boredom
of dead sensation

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

Silence: the echo
of ennui, the sudden state
of eternity

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

Democracy is
an imposter, the tyrant
as mad dream poet

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

Civilization
is always preferable
to the tomb of God

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

Paradise is a
distant enemy—a thorn
in my suffering

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

The ambition to
sleep is thwarted by the fear
of killing oneself

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

To speak in the name
of others is to butcher
sweet indifference

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