Once, if my memory serves me well, my life was a banquet where every heart revealed itself, where every wine flowed. I have withered within me all human hope. With the silent leap of a sullen beast, I have downed and strangled every joy. I have called for executioners; I want to perish chewing on their gun butts. I have called for plagues, to suffocate in sand and blood. Unhappiness has been my god.
25 quotes from A Season in Hell/The Drunken Boat: 'I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world.

A while back, if I remember right, my life was one long party where all hearts were open wide, where all wines kept flowing. I managed to make every trace of human hope vanish from my mind. I pounced on every joy like a ferocious animal eager to strangle it. I called for executioners so that, while dying, I could bite the butts of their rifles. I called for plagues to choke me with sand, with blood.
