#12. The usual reproach against the essay, that it is fragmentary and random, itself assumes the givenness of totality and suggests that man is in control of this totality. The desire of the essay, though, is not to filter the eternal out of the transitory; it wants, rather, to make the transitory eternal. #Quote by Theodor Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor Adorno

Adorno

#23. Cultural criticism finds itself faced with the final stage of the dialectic of culture and barbarism. To write poetry after the holocaust is barbaric. And this corrodes even the knowledge of why it has become impossible to write poetry today. Absolute reification, which presupposed intellectual progress as one of its elements, is now preparing to absorb the mind entirely. Critical intelligence cannot be equal to this challenge as long as it confines itself to self-satisfied contemplation. #Quote by Theodor Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor Adorno

#26. As the arrangements of life no longer allow time for pleasure conscious of itself, replacing it by the performance of physiological functions, de-inhibited sex is itself de-sexualized. Really, they no longer want ecstasy at all, but merely compensation for an outlay that, best of all, they would like to save as superfluous. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor Adorno
#27. Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane. #Quote by Theodor Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Max Horkheimer
#28. The development of the proletarian elite does not take place in an academic setting. Rather, it is brought about by battles in the factories and unions, by disciplinary punishments and some very dirty fights within the parties and outside of them, by jail sentences and illegality. Students do not flock in large numbers there as they do to the lecture halls and laboratories of the bourgeoisie. The career of a revolutionary does not consists of banquets and honarary titles, of interesting research projects and professional salaries; more likely, it will acquaint them with misery, dishonory and jail and, at the end, uncertainty. These conditions are made bearable only by a super-human faith. Understandably, this way of life will not be the choice of those who are nothing more than clever. #Quote by Max Horkheimer
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Max Horkheimer
#29. In the face of the idea that truth might afford the opposite of satisfaction and turn out to be completely shocking to humanity at any given historical moment, ... the fathers of pragmatism made the satisfaction of the subject the criterion of truth. For such a doctrine there is no possibility of rejecting or even criticizing any species of belief that is enjoyed by its adherents. #Quote by Max Horkheimer
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#30. A film which followed the code of the Hays Office to the strictest letter might succeed in being a great work of art, but not in a world in which a Hays Office exists. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno

#31. Talent is perhaps nothing other than successfully sublimated rage. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor Adorno
#32. The most powerful person is he who is able to do least himself and burden others most with the things for which he lends his name and pockets the credit. #Quote by Theodor Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#33. Triviality is evil - triviality, that is, in the form of consciousness and mind that adapts itself to the world as it is, that obeys the principle of inertia. And this principle of inertia truly is what is radically evil. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor Adorno
#34. To say 'we' and mean 'I' is one of the most recondite insults. #Quote by Theodor Adorno

Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#45. On the way from mythology to logistics thought has lost the element of self-reflection and today machinery disables men even as it nurtures them. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Horkheimer Adorno quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#46. And what enriched me while reading Adorno, for example, lay not in what I read but in the perception of myself while I was reading. I was someone who read Adorno! And in this heavy, intricate, detailed, precise language whose aim was to elevate thought ever higher, and where every period was set like a mountaineer's cleat, there was something else, this particular approach to the mood of reality, the shadow of these sentences that could evoke in me a vague desire to use the language with this particular mood on something real, on something living. Not on an argument, but on a lynx, for example, or on a blackbird or a cement mixer. #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
