Quotes about repulsion

Becoming The I

orchestrate avalanches to manifest tragedy
arouse destruction to manifest creation
reap the rivers to manifest drowning
drown the infant to manifest breathing

tip the hourglass, spill time coagulation
unleashing the tower collapse beneath below
as above bruised anticipation consumes
subconscious equilibrium dissection

raw ascension beyond corridors of golden dawn
tearing into emotional disconnection
grueling vertebrae entanglement
reassemble interrupted soul division

will breathing from suffocation
will suffocation from birth
will birth from repulsion
will repulsion from attraction
will attraction from decay

The Interpretation of Nature and

I.

MAN, being the servant and interpreter of Nature, can do and understand so much and so much only as he has observed in fact or in thought of the course of nature: beyond this he neither knows anything nor can do anything.


II.

Neither the naked hand nor the understanding left to itself can effect much. It is by instruments and helps that the work is done, which are as much wanted for the understanding as for the hand. And as the instruments of the hand either give motion or guide it, so the instruments of the mind supply either suggestions for the understanding or cautions.

III.

Human knowledge and human power meet in one; for where the cause is not known the effect cannot be produced. Nature to be commanded must be obeyed; and that which in contemplation is as the cause is in operation as the rule.

IV.

Towards the effecting of works, all that man can do is to put together or put asunder natural bodies. The rest is done by nature working within.

V.

The study of nature with a view to works is engaged in by the mechanic, the mathematician, the physician, the alchemist, and the magician; but by all (as things now are) with slight endeavour and scanty success.

A grocer is attracted to his business by a magnetic force as great as the repulsion which renders it odious to artists.

William Blake

Without contraries is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.

Italo Calvino

The satirist is prevented by repulsion from gaining a better knowledge of the world he is attracted to, yet he is forced by attraction to concern himself with the world that repels him.

In Italy, on the breaking up of the Roman Empire, society might be said to be resolved into its original elements, - into hostile atoms, whose only movement was that of mutual repulsion.

Sailing On...

there is this mutual dislike
an expected repulsion

is there a need to say it?
must there be more insult

to an injury that refuses to
heal?

the world is a wide ocean
a vast continent

we must simply forget
and sail on...

Man Kissing Man

They insist their lifestyle
Is not wrong
When people all the while
Give reactions so strong?

Indeed is it true
Nobody gets offended
Why is it people do
Still call it abhorrent?

Actions that are not normal
Will produce repulsion
Man's breed is social
With rules and conditions

People react and express disgust
When things abnormal are displayed
As the times now demand we must
Say the message, have it conveyed

130.Invisible intentions

Shriveling the spirit
Without healing in the vicinity
Transcending the suffering
Without scuttling of memories
Afflicting the gratification
Without acceptance of the feeling
Confronting the pains
Without love engaging the soul
Resenting the attempt to intervene my life
Without repulsion left in store
I go hunting for the unknown
Come finding the thrown
That is open to the winds
But close to my heart!
