I know Zizek is the hot philosopher right now, but I don’t know much about him. These quotes from him, however, are very good:
If you could edit your past, what would you change?
My birth. I agree with Sophocles: the greatest luck is not to have been born – but, as the joke goes on, very few people succeed in it.
What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
That life is a stupid, meaningless thing that has nothing to teach you.
I got them from Efilism/Antinatalism.
In the opposition between life and death, I’m for death. That’s why I love Von Trier’s Melancholia – all life on Earth disappears, so I think it’s a film with a happy ending.
