"There’s something evil in me that loves evil and degradation—purity’s black backside! That loves honesty with a horrid love; or why have I always gone seeking it at the liar’s door?" — Djuna Barnes (Nightwood)

“By a certain age, we should change names and hide out somewhere, lost to the world, in no danger of seeing friends or enemies again, leading the peaceful life of an overworked malefactor.” - E.M. Cioran, (The Trouble With Being Born)

"Cras, in Latin, means ‘tomorrow’. Crastinus is what belongs to tomorrow. To pro-crastinate, is to place something among the things that belong to tomorrow. To place something there, which implies right away that tomorrow is not that thing’s natural place, that the thing in question does not belong there of right. By implication, it belongs elsewhere! Where? The present, obviously. In order to land in the tomorrow, the thing needs first to be pulled out from the present or barred access to it. ‘To procrastinate’ means not to take things as they come, not to act according to a natural succession of things. Contrary to the impression made common in the modern era, procrastination is not a matter of sloth, indolence, quiescence or lassitude; it is an active stance, an attempt to assume control over the sequence of events and make that sequence different from what it would be were one to stay docile and unresisting, To procrastinate is to manipulate the possibilities of the presence of a thing by putting it off, delaying and postponing its becoming present, keeping it at a distance and deferring its immediacy.”-Zygmunt Bauman, (Liquid Modernity)

"The human body is not a thing or substance, given, but a continuous creation. The human body is an energy system which is never a complete structure; never static; is in perpetual inner self-construction and self-destruction; we destroy in order to make it new."-Norman O. Brown
