Right now I'm wondering what's best for me.

A bottle in front o me? Or a frontal lobotomy?

“Philosophy, art, and science are not the mental objects of an objectified brain but the three aspects under which the brain becomes subject.”

― Gilles Deleuze


“There’s no democratic state that’s not compromised to the very core by its part in generating human misery.”

― Gilles Deleuze


“The various forms of education or ‘normalization’ imposed upon an individual consist in making him or her change points of subjectification, always moving towards a higher, nobler one in closer conformity with the supposed ideal. Then from the point of subjectification issues a subject of enunciation, as a function of a mental reality determined by that point. Then from the subject of enunciation issues a subject of the statement, in other words, a subject bound to statements in conformity with a dominant reality”

― Gilles Deleuze

“A tyrant institutionalises stupidity, but he is the first servant of his own system and the first to be installed within it.”

― Gilles Deleuze


“Philosophy does not serve the State or the Church, who have other concerns. It serves no established power. The use of philosophy is to sadden. A philosophy that saddens no one, that annoys no one, is not a philosophy. It is useful for harming stupidity, for turning stupidity into something shameful.”

― Gilles Deleuze
