Madness of the Day (excerpts)

Posted in Uncategorized by supergoing on September 9, 2010

“Am I an egoist? I feel drawn to only a few people, pity no one, rarely wish to please, rarely wish to be pleased, and I, who am almost unfeeling where I myself am concerned, suffer only in them, so that their slightest worry becomes an infinitely great misfortune for me, and even so, if I have to, I deliberately sacrifice them, I deprive them every feeling of happiness (sometimes I kill them).”

“She was reduced to saying futile things: ‘The truth is that we can never be separated again. I will follow you everywhere. I will live under your roof; we will share the same sleep.'”

– From Madness of the Day, Maurice Blanchot
