the child grows enormous but never grows up
Human psychology seems to be such that many ambitious people find it far less scary to think about destroying the world, than to think about never amounting to much of anything at all.
Poor boy, there is no hope for you. I have discovered your great wound; this flower in your side is destroying you.
Franz Kafka  (via narcosis)
Destroy yourselves, you who are desperate, and you who are tortured in body and soul, abandon all hope. There is no more solace for you in this world. The world lives off your rotting flesh.
Antonin Artaud, General Security: The Liquidation of Opium (via depressionparty)
In order to understand, I destroyed myself.
Fernando Pessoa
