“Tedium is the worst pain. the mind lays out the world in blocks, and the hushed blood waits for revenge. all order, i've come to understand, is theoretical, unreal - a harmless sensible, smiling mask men slide between the two great, dark realities, the self and the world - two snake pits.”
― John Gardner, Grendel

“Theology does not thrive in the world of action and reaction, change: it grows on calm, like the scum on a stagnant pool. And it flourishes, it prospers, on decline. Only in a world where everything is patently being lost can a priest stir men's hearts as a poet would by maintaining that nothing is in vain.”
― John Gardner, Grendel

“They hacked down trees widening rings around their central halls and blistered the land with peasant huts and pigeon fences till the forest looked like an old dog dying of mange. they thinned out the game, killed birds for sport, set accidental fire that would burn for days. their sheep killed hedges, snipped valleys bare, and their pigs nosed up the very roots of what might have grown. hrothgar's tribe made boats to drive farther north and west. there was nothing to stop the advance of man. huge boars fled at the click of a harness. wolves would cower in the glens like foxes when they caught that deadly scent. i was filled with a wordless, obscurely murderous unrest.”
― John Gardner, Grendel

“Stars, spattered out through lifeless night from end to end, like jewels scattered in a dead king's grave, tease, torment my wits toward meaningful patterns that do not exist.”
― John Gardner, Grendel

“Bad art is always basically creepy; that is its first and most obvious identifying sign”
― John Gardner

“Self pity is easily the most destructive of the non-pharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality.”
― John Gardner

“He was saner than anyone --had fallen out of the world of illusion: love, interesting work, hope for the future.”
― John Gardner, Mickelsson's Ghosts

“But, then, I cannot escape the objection that there is no state of mind, however simple, which does not change every moment, since there is no consciousness without memory, and no continuation of a state without the addition, to the present feeling, of the memory of past moments. It is this which constitutes duration. Inner duration is the continuous life of a memory which prolongs the past into the present, the present either containing within it in a distinct form the ceaselessly growing image of the past, or, more profoundly, showing by its continual change of quality the heavier and still heavier load we drag behind us as we grow older. Without this survival of the past into the present there would be no duration, but only instantaneity.”
― Henri Bergson

"But I must warn you of one particular disgrace. You know that people of low mentality haunt fortune-tellers of equal calibre, but with more low cunning. They do not really want to know the future, or to get advice; their real object is to persuade some supposed 'authority' to flatter them and confirm them in their folly and stupidity." [Crowley, Magick Without Tears]

“You can only fight the way you practice.”

“In battle, if you make your opponent flinch, you have already won.”

"The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience."

"Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them."

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

"Hope clouds observation."

"It is our first duty to be men, strong and splendid, or women, healthy and perfect, if we are desirous of securing life’s most gratifying prizes. Many actually go through life only half alive. They are, to a certain extent, doped by their physical deficiencies. They have been handicapped by a lack of the energy that comes with physical development. They need to be stirred by the regular use of the physical powers of the body. When the body is complete in all of its various parts it is truly a marvelous organism. Throbbing vitality stirs the imagination, gives one courage and capacity, thrills one with the possibilities of life, fires the ambitions. The efforts involved in one’s daily duties, be they ever so important, then become mere play. To such a man inactivity is impossible. Every day must be filled with active, interesting duties, and progress in such cases is inevitable. Such a man grows, he improves, he ascends. He becomes a positive dominating force in the world." [Bernarr Macfadden, Vitality Supreme]

"When a civilisation is reaching its end, it is difficult to achieve anything by resisting it and by directly opposing the forces in motion. The current is too strong; one would be over-whelmed. The essential thing is not to let oneself be impressed by the omnipotence and apparent triumph of the forces of the epoch. These forces, devoid of connection with any higher principle, are in fact on a short chain. One should not become fixated on the present and on things at hand, but keep in view the conditions that may come about in the future." [Evola, Ride the Tiger]

"Nowadays there is a lot of talk about hate crimes, there is an entire body of laws against hate crimes, everybody seems to be worried about hate. Hate appears to be the greatest problem of our time. But hate, is good. Hate gives us structure to our life, hate gives us a reason to exist, a focus, something to strive for, an identity. Hate is energy, pure energy provided by mother nature herself. Hate enables us to see through lies and pretense, and helps us to concentrate on the essential. Even the rich and the powerful cannot hate more than their slaves and subjects, and soon, hate may well be all that we have left. Hate, emancipates. Without hate of slavery, you cannot break your shackles, and without hate for injustice, there can be no justice. The greatest achievements of the human race have grown from hate, and the ability to control hate. How can we know what love is, if we refuse to understand and recognize hate. Love and hate are two opposite sides of the same coin. Without hate, we are only half-lings. In order to be complete, we need hate. Only fools talk endlessly about love but forget the hate. Hate separates us from the weak and docile masses. Do not fear hate, do not deny or reject hate. Accept hate, and embrace hate. Learn to know it, and learn to use it. Hate is your most powerful weapon, a hidden source of your strength, do not deny from you. What the liberal elite fear most in this world is or ability to hate, because our hate will one day be the most revolutionary force on the planet. Our hate will destroy and create empires." [Kai Murros]

"Political correctness, as a peculiar type of thought control, will not disappear overnight from the political and intellectual life in postmodern America and Europe. In fact, at the beginning of this new millennium, it has strengthened its hold in all spheres of social, political and cultural activity. Its chief standard bearers, as regards the antifascist struggle, are alive and well and in charge of the grand democratic narrative. Post-communist and post-Marxist intellectuals, as seen earlier in our descriptions, continue to thrive and control modern discourse in the higher echelons of the media and opinion making. They may have discarded their Freudo-Marxian scholasticism of yesteryear, but they continue to relentlessly advocate the ideology of multiculturalism, egalitarianism, and globalism—that is, all those doctrines which were once destined to make up the perfect communist system. The only difference is that the Americanized version of political correctness has become more effective through the adoption of managerial capitalism and Judeo-Centric modern historiography. Whereas the average American and European citizen is a daily witness to a constant barrage of antifascist Holocaust victimology that has obtained religious status in Europe, hardly any mention is made against former left-leaning intellectuals who once marched in the footsteps of Maoism, Trotskyism, Titoism, and who are still entrenched in the media and educational system. Thus, in postmodern interregnum, both America and Europe appear hardly distinguishable. They function symbiotically in a mimicking manner, as if each is trying to prove that it does not lag behind its overseas fellow traveler and its own antifascist therapeutic rhetoric. Ironically, as Europe and America move further and further away in time from the epoch of Fascism and National Socialism, the more their public discourse revolves around an endless antifascist theme. Never has the West preached so much tolerance and so much multiracial conviviality, at a time when the whole system is ripe with all forms of subterranean violence and mutual hatred." [Tomislav Sunic]

"Man is constantly being assured today that he has more power than ever before in history, but his daily experience is one of powerlessness. Look at him today somewhere in the warren of a great city. If he is with a business organization, the odds are great that he has sacrificed every other kind of independence in return for that dubious one known as financial. Modern social and corporate organization makes independence an expensive thing; in fact, it may make common integrity a prohibitive luxury for the ordinary man, as Stuart Chase has shown. Not only is this man likely to be a slavery at his place of daily toil, but he is cribbed, cabined, and confined in countless ways, many of which are merely devices to make possible physically the living together of masses. Because these are deprivations of what is rightful, the end is frustration, and hence the look, upon the faces of those whose souls have not already become minuscule, of hunger and unhappiness." [Richard Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences]

"The modern democracies of the West, with their philosophies of the stomach and the stock exchange, cannot inspire the people nor protect them. They despise nationhood and despise race. But without our national and racial backbones how shall we stand erect? With quicksands as our foundation how shall we build? How shall we be true to ourselves if we have no selves? Our race is what we are; it is our form. It is our fathers and mothers and brothers and sisters and wives and children. They are the race. How then shall we count it of little worth? Shall we despise our own flesh and blood?" [Anthony Jacob]

"The fundamental principle underlying all justification of war, from the point of view of human personality, is 'heroism'. War, it is said, offers man the opportunity to awaken the hero who sleeps within him. War breaks the routine of comfortable life; by means of its severe ordeals, it offers a transfiguring knowledge of life, life according to death. The moment the individual succeeds in living as a hero, even if it is the final moment of his earthly life, weighs infinitely more on the scale of values than a protracted existence spent consuming monotonously among the trivialities of cities. From a spiritual point of view, these possibilities make up for the negative and destructive tendencies of war, which are one-sidedly and tendentiously highlighted by pacifist materialism. War makes one realise the relativity of human life and therefore also the law of a 'more-than-a-life', and thus war has always an anti-materialist value, a spiritual value." [Evola, Metaphysics of War]

"We cannot ask ourselves whether ‘woman’ is superior or inferior to ‘man’ any more than we can ask ourselves whether water is superior or inferior to fire … There can be no doubt that a woman who is perfectly woman is superior to a man who is imperfectly man, just as a farmer who is faithful to his land and performs his work perfectly is superior to a king who cannot do his own work."

"Undoubtedly, mythology will appear again. It is always present and arises in a propitious hour like a treasure coming to the surface. But man does not return to the realm of myth, he reencounters it when the age is out of joint and in the magic circle of extreme danger. It is not a question therefore of choosing the forest or the ship but of choosing both the forest and the ship. The number of those who want to abandon the ship is growing, and among them are clear heads and fine minds. But it amounts to a disembarkation in mid-ocean. Hunger will follow, and cannibalism, and the sharks: in short, all the terrors that have been reported from the raft of Medusa. Hence it is advisable under all circumstances to stay aboard even at the danger of being blown up. This objection is not directed against the poet who reveals–through his life as well as through his work–the vast superiority of the artistic universe over the world of technology. He helps man to rediscover himself: the poet is a wanderer in the forest (Waldgänger), for authorship is merely another form of independence." [Ernst Jünger]

"Capitalism basically wants people to be interchangable cogs, and differences among them, such as on the basis of race, usually are not functional. I mean, they may be functional for a period, like if you want a super exploited workforce or something, but those situations are kind of anomalous. Over the long term, you can expect capitalism to be anti-racist — just because its anti-human. And race is in fact a human characteristic — there’s no reason why it should be a negative characteristic, but it is a human characteristic. So therefore identifications based on race interfere with the basic ideal that people should be available just as consumers and producers, interchangable cogs who will purchase all the junk that’s produced — that’s their ultimate function, and any other properties they might have are kind of irrelevent, and usually a nuisance." [Noam Chomsky, Understanding Power: The Indispensable Chomsky]

"The universalist ideal rests on the belief that human beings are willing to share such a collective system with the rest of humanity. But evolutionary psychology suggests that humans have developed kin selection, those tribes with the strongest sense of in-group altruism being the most likely to survive… No universal altruism has evolved because a sense of universal altruism would have no evolutionary advantage. Garrett Hardin argued in a 1982 essay, ‘Discriminating Altruisms’, that a world without borders or distinctions is impossible, because groups that practice unlimited altruism will be eliminated in favor of those that limit altruistic behavior to smaller groups, from whom they receive benefits." [Edward West]

"Unlike the Romans, who relied for their military strength on a professional army (and therefore on tax), freeborn Germanic males looked on fighting as a duty, a mark of status, and, perhaps, even a pleasure. As a result, large numbers of them were practised in warfare — a very much higher proportion of the population than amongst the Romans. Within reach of the Rhine and Danube frontiers lived tens of thousands of men who had been brought up to think of war as a glorious and manly pursuit, and who had the physique and basic training to put these ideals into practice.

Fortunately for the Romans, their innate bellicosity was, however, to a large extent counterbalanced by another, closely related, feature of tribal societies — disunity, caused by fierce feuds, both between tribes and within them. At the end of the first century, the historian and commentator Tacitus fully appreciated the importance for the Romans of Germanic disunity. He hoped ‘that it may last and persist amongst the barbarians that if they can not love us, at least they should hate themselves … for Fortune can give us no better gift than discord amongst our enemies’. Similarly, at a slightly earlier date, the philosopher Seneca remarked on the exceptional valour and love of warfare of the barbarians, and pointed to the great danger that there would be for Rome if these strengths were ever joined by reason (ratio) and discipline (disciplina)." [Bryan Ward-Perkins, The Fall of Rome and the End of Civilization]

"The new, ‘spiritual’ man of today can browse through bookstores or surf the internet to find any religious idea or practice that strikes his fancy, from Western to Eastern, from Sufism to satanism. The more data he stores in his head, however, the more vague his worldview becomes. He has religious interests in several areas, but he basically believes that all is relative, i. e.: ‘My ideas work for me, your ideas work for you.’ He believes in everything at once, but in nothing very deeply, and in nothing that will demand a sacrifice from him. He has nothing worth dying for. But his antennae are out, feeling for something else that will strike his fancy, that will satisfy his vague unrest without asking that he honestly look at himself and change, without disturbing his constant endeavor to satisfy his ego." [Hieromonk Damascene]

"Man overcomes himself, affirms himself and realizes himself in the struggle toward the summit, toward the absolute. In the extreme tension of the struggle, on the frontier of death, the universe disappears and drops away beneath us. Space, time, fear, suffering no longer exist. Everything then becomes quite simple. As on the crest of a wave, or in the heart of a cyclone, we are strangely calm — not the calm of emptiness, but the heart of action itself." [Lucien Devies, Annapurna]

"Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don’t accept what they call ‘the reality of life’ and act in such a way that you won’t be accepted by that kind of ‘life’, never abandon the principle of struggle."[Evola]

"Words like ‘self-confidence,’ ‘self-reliance,’ ‘initiative,’ ‘enterprise,’ ‘optimism,’ etc., play little role in the liberal and leftist vocabulary. The leftist is anti-individualistic, pro-collectivist. He wants society to solve everyone’s problems for them, satisfy everyone’s needs for them, take care of them. He is not the sort of person who has an inner sense of confidence in his ability to solve his own problems and satisfy his own needs. The leftist is antagonistic to the concept of competition because, deep inside, he feels like a loser." [Ted Kaczynski, Technological Slavery: The Collected Writings]

"The morality of equality is an evil and destructive morality. What is equal is replaceable, and what is replaceable has no value. Equality makes everyone a slave. Value comes from two sources, superiority and scarcity. What is superior is higher in quality than what is average. And what is scarce, what is rare or unique has higher value than can be found everywhere. The ultimate consequence of an egalitarian morality is the destruction of human value.

It’s no surprise that the history of egalitarianism is a history of state terror, and mass murder. The french revolution led to the guillotine, and the reign of terror. And since the only people in the world who honestly believe in the absolute moral goodness of equality, are the European descended people of the West, and those in the white western diasporas and elsewhere. The egalitarian morality is ultimately the methodology for destroying the value of western man, in the eyes of western man. And what makes this especially nefarious is the fact that western man is deeply preoccupied with morality. That’s why he is more worried about being called a name, than about his own continuity and prosperity. That’s why he is more worried about being thought of as a bad person than about feeling at home, in his own homeland. That’s how he becomes an ethnomasochist.

You may think it’s strange to speak about western mans moral preoccupation in times of perceived widespread immorality. But the truth is, we are living in Puritanical times. When it comes to the belief in the moral goodness of equality, the consequences of heterodoxy are severe. So western man is and remains deeply preoccupied with morality, and ultimately this has geopolitical implications, because most of the peoples of the world value their own uniqueness. They think tribally, ethnically, and racially. They are willing to act in consequence, no matter what it says on their passport. For them this is right and good and completely uncontroversial." [Alex Kurtagic, Speech Extract: 'Identitarian Ideas 4']

"Modern capitalism is just as subversive as Marxism. The materialistic view of life on which both systems are based is identical. As long as we only talk about economic classes, profit, salaries, and production, and as long as we believe that real human progress is determined by a particular system of distribution of wealth and goods, then we are not even close to what is essential." [Evola]

"Until recently there persisted among Europeans the obscure awareness of a mystic solidarity with the land of ones birth. It was not a commonplace love of country or province; it was not admiration of ancestors buried, generation after genation, around the village church. It was something entirely different: the mystic experience of autochthony, of being indigenous, the profound sense of having emerged from the local ground, the sense that the earth had given birth to us, much as it had given birth, in it’s inexhaustible fertility, to rocks and stream and flowers…" [Mircea Eliade]

"For the authentic revolutionary conservative, what really counts is to be faithful not to past forms and institutions, but rather to principles of which such forms and institutions have been particular expressions, adequate for a specific period of time and in a specific geographical area."

"People are used to the way things are, however mediocre they may be. It’s all they know, it’s comfortable, even if they know things could be better. You see, mediocrity is comfortable, it does not require effort, it does not require discipline, it does not require being noticed, it does not require “upsetting” someone… because excellence upsets those who cannot produce it, and glory upsets those who cannot be apart of it."

"The empty, smiling, face, the uniform mind, the senseless chasing after noise, movement, and sensation, the obsession with moneymaking and money-spending, the rejection of all spiritual standards of attainment — all this merely reflects the basic interpretation of Life as a seeking for a happy-end. For happiness one will compromise anything, give anything, sell anything. Happiness becomes synonymous with pursuit of economic and sexual motives. It absolutely excludes any profitless struggle against odds, merely in order to be one’s self. Understanding and respect for the tragedy of Life, the magic of Life, the power of the Idea, are precluded by the happy-end feeling."
[Yockey, Imperium]

"For the Age has itself become vulgar, and most people have no idea to what extent they are themselves tainted. The bad manners of all parliaments, the general tendency to connive at a rather shady business transaction if it promises to bring in money without work, jazz and Negro dances as the spiritual outlet in all circles of society, women painted like prostitutes, the efforts of writers to winpopularity by ridiculing in their novels and plays the correctness of well-bred people, and the bad taste shown even by the nobility and old princely families in throwing off every kind of social restraint and time-honoured custom: all of these go to prove that it is now the vulgar mob that gives the tone."
[Spengler, The Decline of the West II]

"The modern intellectual is, for the most part, a lecher and a fool. His theories are propounded for everyone but himself. So Rousseau, the writer of Emile, the first modern book on child rearing, sent all five of his illegitimate children to the orphanage shortly after they were born, which given the conditions of orphanages in the 18th century, meant to their deaths. Marx, the champion of the proletariat, knew only one proletarian in his life, his maid, Lenchen, to whom he paid not one single penny in wages. In addition to this economic exploitation, there was also the sexual exploitation. Marx fathered an illegitimate child by her and refused to acknowledge it."
[E. Michael Jones, Degenerate Moderns: Modernity as Rationalized Sexual Misbehavior]

"The blood of your fathers has turned to water in your veins. Not your lot is it to be strong as they were. Having tasted neither life’s sorrows nor its joy, like a sickling you look at life through a glass. Your skin will shrivel, your muscles grow weak, tedium will devour your flesh destroying desire. Thought will congeal in your skull and horror will stare at you from the mirror. Overcome yourself, overcome yourself. I tremble, I seethe, I clench, I seize the haul." [Yuri Vlasov]

"The love talked and written about so much in novels, poetry and magazines, the love of one’s neighbour, the universal love of the churches, love of humanity, has nothing whatsoever to do with ‘loveless love’, which is a harsh discipline, cold as ice, as cutting as a sword, and which aspires to overcome the human condition in order to reach the Kingdom of the Immortals." [Miguel Serrano]
