E. M. Cioran
Quotations


Consciousness is much more than the thorn, it is the dagger in the flesh.

A sudden silence in the middle of a conversation suddenly brings us back to essentials: it reveals how dearly we must pay for the invention of speech.

To want fame is to prefer dying scorned than forgotten.

A civilization is destroyed only when its gods are destroyed.

Imaginary pains are by far the most real we suffer, since we feel a constant need for them and invent them because there is no way of doing without them.

Criticism is a misconception: we must read not to understand others but to understand ourselves.

If we could see ourselves as others see us, we would vanish on the spot.
