Camille Paglia QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A serious problem in America is the gap between academe and the mass media, which is our culture. Professors of humanities, with all their leftist fantasies, have little direct knowledge of American life and no impact whatever on public policy.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
A woman simply is, but a man must become. Masculinity is risky and elusive. It is achieved by a revolt from woman, and it is confirmed only by other men. Manhood coerced into sensitivity is no manhood at all.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
All objects, all phases of culture are alive. They have voices. They speak of their history and interrelatedness. And they are all talking at once!
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Beauty is our weapon against nature; by it we make objects, giving them limit, symmetry, proportion. Beauty halts and freezes the melting flux of nature.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Despite crime's omnipresence, things work in society, because biology compels it. Order eventually restores itself, by psychic equilibrium.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Education has become a prisoner of contemporaneity. It is the past, not the dizzy present, that is the best door to the future.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Every man must define his identity against his mother. If he does not, he just falls back into her and is swallowed up.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Heaven help the American-born boy with a talent for ballet.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
I believe that history has shape, order, and meaning; that exceptional men, as much as economic forces, produce change; and that passe abstractions like beauty, nobility, and greatness have a shifting but continuing validity.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
If civilization had been left in female hands we would still be living in grass huts.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
If you live in rock and roll, as I do, you see the reality of sex, of male lust and women being aroused by male lust. It attracts women. It doesn't repel them.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
It is capitalist America that produced the modern independent woman. Never in history have women had more freedom of choice in regard to dress, behavior, career, and sexual orientation.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Jesus was a brilliant Jewish stand-up comedian, a phenomenal improviser. His parables are great one-liners.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Leaving sex to the feminists is like letting your dog vacation at the taxidermist.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Men know they are sexual exiles. They wander the earth seeking satisfaction, craving and despising, never content. There is nothing in that anguished motion for women to envy.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Modern bodybuilding is ritual, religion, sport, art, and science, awash in Western chemistry and mathematics. Defying nature, it surpasses it.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
My generation of the Sixties, with all our great ideals, destroyed liberalism, because of our excesses.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
My thinking tends to be libertarian. That is, I oppose intrusions of the state into the private realm - as in abortion, sodomy, prostitution, pornography, drug use, or suicide, all of which I would strongly defend as matters of free choice in a representative democracy.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west's stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art's assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Pornography is human imagination in tense theatrical action; its violations are a protest against the violations of our freedom by nature.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Pursuit and seduction are the essence of sexuality. It's part of the sizzle.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Teenage boys, goaded by their surging hormones run in packs like the primal horde. They have only a brief season of exhilarating liberty between control by their mothers and control by their wives.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Television is actually closer to reality than anything in books. The madness of TV is the madness of human life.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
The 1990s, after the reign of terror of academic vandalism, will be a decade of restoration: restoration of meaning, value, beauty, pleasure, and emotion to art and restoration of art to its audience.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
The only thing that will be remembered about my enemies after they're dead is the nasty things I've said about them.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
There is no true expertise in the humanities without knowing all of the humanities. Art is a vast, ancient interconnected web-work, a fabricated tradition. Over-concentration on any one point is a distortion.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Though men may be deep, mentally they are slow.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
When anything goes, it's women who lose.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
Woman is the dominant sex. Men have to do all sorts of stuff to prove that they are worthy of woman's attention.
Quotation of Camille Paglia
You have to accept the fact that part of the sizzle of sex comes from the danger of sex. You can be overpowered.
