Octave Mirbeau
Quotations


Murder is born of love, and love attains the greatest intensity in murder.

When one tears away the veils and shows them naked, people's souls give off such a pungent smell of decay.

The greatest danger of bombs is in the explosion of stupidity that they provoke.

The universe appears to me like an immense, inexorable torture-garden. . . . Passions, greed, hatred, and lies; law, social institutions, justice, love, glory, heroism, and religion: these are its monstrous flowers and its hideous instruments of eternal human suffering.
