"We are discontinuous beings, individuals who perish in isolation in the midst of an incomprehensible adventure, but we yearn for our lost continuity."

"What does physical eroticism signify if not a violation of the very being of its practitioners? A violation bordering on death, bordering on murder?"


"The whole business of eroticism is to destroy the self-contained character of the participators as they are in their normal lives."

"We ought never to forget that in spite of the bliss love promises its first effect is one of turmoil and distress. Passion fulfilled itself provokes such violent agitation that the happiness involved, before being a happiness to be enjoyed, is so great as to be more like its opposite, suffering."

"Possession of the beloved object does not imply death, but the idea of death is linked with the urge to possess. If the lover cannot possess the beloved he will sometimes think of killing her, often he would rather kill her than loose her. Or he may wish to die himself. (...) Only the beloved can in this world bring about what our human limitations deny, a total blending of two beings, a continuity between two discontinuous creatures. Hence love spell suffering for us in so far as it is a quest for the impossible."
