destruction

In that one slight motion, I see the end of hope, beginning of destruction of everything I hold dear in the world. I can’t guess what form my punishment will take, how wide the net will be cast, but when it is finished there most likely be nothing left. So you would think that at this moment, I would be in utter despair.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

Perhaps in the world’s destruction it would be possible at last to see how it was made. Oceans, mountains. The ponderous counterspectacle of things ceasing to be. The sweeping waste, hydroptic and coldly secular. The silence.

The Road, Cormac McCarthy

… no amount of after-the-fact sorrow could ever atone for joy taken in destruction, whether it was burning ants or shooting prisoners.

Stephen King, Under The Dome

I want war. To me all means will be right. My motto is not “Don’t, whatever you do, annoy the enemy.” My motto is “Destroy him by all and any means.” I am the one who will wage the war!

Adolf Hitler

It would have been more to the point, more honest and more Christian, in past decades not to support those who intentionally destroyed healthy life than to rebel against those who have no other wish than to avoid disease. Moreover, a policy of laissez faire in this sphere is not only cruelty to the individual guiltless victims but also to the nation as a whole… If the Churches were to declare themselves ready to take over the treatment and care of those suffering from hereditary diseases, we should be quite ready to refrain from sterilizing them.

Adolf Hitler

I believe that Providence would never have allowed us to see the victory of the Movement if it had the intention after all to destroy us at the end.

Adolf Hitler

We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.

Adolf Hitler

The ability to destroy a planet, or even a whole system, is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Darth Vader, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

We’ll be remembered more for what we destroy than what we create.

Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Anger is the most useless emotion; destructive to the mind and hurtful of the heart.

Stephen King, The Dark Tower
