Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?

Albert Camus

It was previously a question of finding out whether or not life has to have a meaning to be lived. It now becomes clear, on the contrary that it will be lived all the better if it has no meaning.

Albert Camus

There is nothing wrong with going to bed with someone of your own sex. People should be very free with sex, they should draw the line at goats.

Elton John

I don’t know the question, but sex is definitely the answer.

Woody Allen

Passion such as hers is all consent, asking little in return. I had merely to enter a room where she was to see her face take on that peaceful expression of one who is resting in bed. If I touched her, I had the impression that all the blood in her veins was turning to honey.

Marguerite Yourcenar

It is nonsense to assert that revelry, vice, ecstasy, passion, would become impossible if man and woman were equal in concrete matters; the contradictions that put the flesh in opposition to the spirit, the instant to time, the swoon of immanence to the challenge of transcendence, the absolute of pleasure to the nothingness of forgetting, will never be resolved; in sexuality will always be materialised the tension, the anguish, the joy, the frustration, and the triumph of existence. To emancipate woman is to refuse to confine her to the relations she bears to man, not to deny them to her; let her have her independent existence and she will continue none the less to exist for him also: mutually recognising each other as subject, each will yet remain for the other an other. The reciprocity of their relations will not do away with the miracles – desire, possession, love, dream, adventure – worked by the division of human beings into two separate categories; and the words that move us – giving, conquering, uniting – will not lose their meaning. On the contrary, when we abolish the slavery of half of humanity, together with the whole system of hypocrisy that it implies, then the ‘division’ of humanity will reveal its genuine significance and the human couple will find its true form.

Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex, “Conclusion” (1949) 

Sex pleasure in women is a kind of magic spell; it demands complete abandon; if words or movements oppose the magic caresses, the spell is broken.

Simone de Beauvoir

All women’s issues are to some degree men’s issues and all men’s issues are to some degree women’s issues because when either sex wins unilaterally both sexes lose.

Warren Farrel

When I sing, I feel like when you’re first in love. It’s more than sex. Its that point two people can get to they call love, when you really touch someone for the first time, but its gigantic, multiplied by the whole audience. I feel chills.

Janis Joplin

I believe in using words, not fists. I believe in my outrage knowing people are living in boxes on the street. I believe in honesty. I believe in a good time. I believe in sex.

Bertrand Russel

If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education go to the library.

Frank Zappa

A man may be a pessimistic determinist before lunch and an optimistic believer in the will’s of freedom after it.

Aldous Huxley

I am not sure that the discovery of love is necessarily more exquisite than the discovery of poetry.

Marguerite Yourcenar, Memoirs of Hadrian

If you want romance, fuck a journalist.

W.H. Auden

We demand that sex speak the truth […] and we demand that it tell us our truth, or rather, the deeply buried truth of that truth about ourselves which we think we possess in out immediate consciousness.

Michael Foucault
