    1. Doubt works deep within you like a disease or, even more effectively, like a faith.I am incapable of tiring of Cioran. His pessimism is so freaking lyrical, his aphorisms so exquisitely timbered, his arpeggiated paragraphs and chorded essays so harmonic in their opaline darkness, their existential deliquescence, their inertial braggadocio, that I'm reduced to fanboy relish every time.Our only choice is between irrespirable truths and salutary frauds.Like tragedy, history resolves nothing, becaus [...]

    2. This is my 4th cioran book, and I’m picking up on some common themes across his writings. i'm also realizing that no other writer i've read has expressed pessimism as deeply or as expressively as he did.For cioran, life is unbearable. the awareness that life is unbearable makes it even moreso, so a certain amount of self-deception is necessary to survive. Ultimately, what we do or think doesn’t matter, in the grand scheme of things, and this gives him some comfort in the same way that I am c [...]

    3. "Esistere è un plagio"Giunta a pagina settantacinque su centosettantasette ho un'urgenza di stellinatura. Procedo con l'operazione.Visto che ci sono, qualche minuto dopo, riporto uno dei trenta passaggi che vorrei trascrivere. Questo:"Quello che ci rovina, no, quello che ci ha rovinati, è la sete di un destino, di un destino qualunque; e se questa debolezza, chiave del divenire storico, ci ha distrutti, ci ha annientati, nello stesso tempo ci avrà salvati, dandoci il gusto della rovina, il de [...]

    4. Cioran is one of those great writers that you can read in the bathtub, which is important to me. First thing in the morning you read his bite like wisedom, and then you are off! Bleak, yes, but then again he's the poet of social despair.

    5. Cominciamo bene: L’uomo e’ inaccettabile. (175)Sembra tuttavia difficile trovare, nei libri di Cioran, il bene, sia nella forma di Summum Bonum che in tutte quelle forme dell’illusione cosmica che il giudizio umano invoca e apprezza come bene. La muraglia appare senza finestre, addirittura senza crepe. Anche la grande finestra nirvanica di Schopenhauer, il presentimento leopardiano di un’arcana felicita’ delusa ma non impossibilissima, sembrano qui del tutto mancare. (Ceronetti, nota i [...]

    6. quotes:- The more power man acquires, the more vulnerable he becomes. What he must fear most is the moment when, creation entirely fleeced, he will celebrate his triumph, that fatal apotheosis, the victory he will not survive. - Fortunate those who, born before Science, were privileged to die of their first disease!- It is my elocutionary defects, my stammerings, my jerky delivery, my art of mumbling - it is my voice, my transeuropean r's, that have impelled me by reaction to take some care with [...]

    7. Each morning, contemplative and discreet, they will murmur certain anathemas against the previous generations; but among themselves, no suspect or sordid sentiment, no rancor or desire to humiliate or to eclipse anyone at all. Free and equal, they will nonetheless set above themselves anyone who, in his life or in his thought, retains none of the vices of engulfed humanity. All will venerate him and know no peace until they resemble him.Boredom in the midst of paradise generated our first ancest [...]

    8. "Non c’è un altro mondo. Non c’è neppure questo mondo. Che cosa c’è allora? Il sorriso interiore che suscita in noi l’inesistenza evidente dell’uno e dell’altro." (p. 139)

    9. 4 e mezzoFile under: filosofia della storia + aforismi cioraniani random. Cioran è qualcuno con cui si può finalmente parlare.

    10. The first half of this book reads partially like an inversion of the progressive model of history (following Kant or Hegel) where history is not progressing but decaying. It has brief insights, such a tension to live outside time in “utopic philosophies,” but ultimately there isn’t much meat. Everything is in decay, not progress, and history has usurped creative power from man. It’s a good place to begin thinking about these ideas but no real insight. Much of Cioran here draws upon Buddh [...]

    11. This collection of several essay-meditations and "Stabs at Bewilderment," a (delightfully titled!) collection of aphorisms has less spark, but still some of that tension between anguish and love of life that made his early book Tears and Saints so magnetic. (This is only the second Cioran book I've read - I can't speak much yet about On the Heights of Despair which I've only just started.) His aphorisms, personal and philosophical, seem to open a window into a fascinating, delightfully paradoxic [...]

    12. "Der Zustand der Gesundheit ist ein Zustand der Nicht-Empfindung, ja sogar der Nicht-Wirklichkeit. Sobald man aufhört zu leiden, hört man auf zu existieren.""Freiheit ist Verausgabung, Freiheit entkräftet, während Unterdrückung dazu veranlaßt, Kräfte zu horten, und die Energieverschwendung verhindert, die sich aus dem Vermögen des freien Menschen ergibt, zu zeigen, nach außen zu projizieren, was er an Gutem besitzt. Man versteht, warum die Sklaven zuletzt immer den Sieg davontragen. Zu [...]

    13. Desgarradura es un libro duro, denso, y sobre todo, muy pesimista, pero a mí me gustó. La profundidad exacta, sin poner más de lo que debía escribirse, me da una gran satisfacción como lectora. Esto lo digo basándome en esa idea errónea que hay en las redes sociales en la que se supone que muchas palabras son sinónimo de grandeza, y no, con este libro se confirma que en la mayoría de los casos, menos es másSEÑA COMPLETA EN MI WEB

    14. "Pensar es correr tras la inseguridad, es pegarse por naderías grandiosas, encerrarse en abstracciones con ansia de martir, es buscar la complicación del mismo modo que otros busvan el hundimiento o el provecho. El pensador está por definición, ávido de tormento" E.M CioranY como en cada uno de sus libros, después de cada aforismo nos hace quedarnos más "ávidos del tormento"

    15. The comparisons to Nietzsche were unjustified; with this book, at least (and I'll have to read some of his others before feeling comfortable making broad statements), I just felt as if I were reading someone taking a little too much pride in his anger/pessimism/negativity-- even if many of the points he was making were valid.

    16. E mai greu să mori la şaizeci sau la optzeci de ani decât la zece sau la treizeci. Obişnuinţă vieţii, ăsta-i necazul. Căci viaţă e un viciu. Cel mai mare din câte sunt. Ceea ce explică de ce ne este atât de anevoie să ne dezbărăm de el.

    17. Some great moments, but I would have enjoyed this more when I was 20, I suspect. Cioran himself writes, "All my ideas come down to various discomforts debased into generalities." The danger of the aphoristic form, maybe. I'll plunge into his other books, maybe I'll fare better there.

    18. Cum am ajuns aici? Ce s-a petrecut oare pentru ca, după veacuri de speranță, să ne aflăm în pragul unei realități pe care doar sarcasmul o face suportabilă?
