Nihilism Quotations

Nearly half of the American population is eagerly anticipating the end of the world. This dewy-eyed nihilism provides absolutely no incentive to build a sustainable civilization. Many of these people are lunatics, but they are not the lunatic fringe.
Sam Harris

I believe that we are all, openly or secretly, struggling against one or another kind of nihilism.
Ellen Willis

Albert Camus

Sharon Salzberg
