Pascal Bruckner Quotes (Author of Bitter Moon)

But they are afraid of life, constantly trampling on it, slandering it, destroying it, and training children still in their cradles for martyrdom. Observers have noted that the photos of terrorists taken a few hours before they made their attacks show people who are serene and at brufkner.

They have eliminated doubt: It is the paradox of open societies that they seem to be disordered, unjust, threatened by crime, loneliness, and drugs because they display their indignity before the whole world, never ceasing to admit their defects, whereas other, more oppressive societies seem harmonious because the press and the opposition are muzzled.


An Essay on Western Masochism. Oricat de puternica era desfatarea, ea nu era niciodata destul de puternica. Mi-am dat seama atunci ca trupul e limitat, spre deosebire de gand.

Self-denigration is all too clearly a form of indirect self-glorification. Evil can come only from us; other people are motivated by sympathy, good will, candor. This is the paternalism of the guilty conscience: On this level our age testifies to a narcissism of malediction that rips it out of its insignificance and reaffirms its centrality: It cannot oascal into another period but only collapse’ Anders, La Menace nucleaire, pag.


What a relief to know that we are not living in a little province of time but in the historic moment when time itself is going to be engulfed! What presumption, and what naivite, to believe that we are the pinnacle of history! This self-abasement is a form of vainglory.

If we can’t be the best, we can still be the worst. Behind their lamentations, the catastrophists are bursting with self-importance.
