„Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing.“

—  Norman Mailer
"Mr. Mailer Interviews Himself" in The New York Times Book Review (17 September 1965)

„Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision.“

—  Norman Mailer
Context: Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision. The more a man can achieve, the more he may be certain that the devil will inhabit a part of his creation. Preface

„You're a fool if you don't realize this is going to be the reactionary's century, perhaps their thousand-year reign.“

—  Norman Mailer
Context: You're a fool if you don't realize this is going to be the reactionary's century, perhaps their thousand-year reign. It's the one thing Hitler said which wasn't completely hysterical. Gen. Edward Cummings, in Pt. 1, Ch. 3

„I would introduce myself if it were not useless. The name I had last night will not be the same as the name I have tonight.“

—  Norman Mailer
Context: I would introduce myself if it were not useless. The name I had last night will not be the same as the name I have tonight. For the moment, then, let me say that I am thinking of Sam Slovoda. Ch. 1

„Crude thoughts and fierce forces are my state.“

—  Norman Mailer
Context: Crude thoughts and fierce forces are my state. I do not know who I am. Nor what I was. I cannot hear a sound. Pain is near that will be like no pain felt before. Ancient Evenings (1983) First lines

„The concept of hero is antagonistic to impersonal social progress,“

—  Norman Mailer
Context: The concept of hero is antagonistic to impersonal social progress, to the belief that social ills can be solved by social legislating, for it sees a country as all-but-trapped in its character until it has a hero who reveals the character of the country to itself.

„One's condition on marijuana is always existential. One can feel the importance of each moment and how it is changing one.“

—  Norman Mailer
Context: One's condition on marijuana is always existential. One can feel the importance of each moment and how it is changing one. One feels one's being, one becomes aware of the enormous apparatus of nothingness — the hum of a hi-fi set, the emptiness of a pointless interruption, one becomes aware of the war between each of us, how the nothingness in each of us seeks to attack the being of others, how our being in turn is attacked by the nothingness in others. Interview in Writers at Work Third Series (1967) edited by George Plimpton

„I love the idea of a left conservative because it gets rid of political cant. We're stifling in it.“

—  Norman Mailer
Context: I love the idea of a left conservative because it gets rid of political cant. We're stifling in it. One of the diseases of the right is self-righteousness. I do believe that America's deepest political sickness is that it is a self-righteous nation. One of the diseases of the left is political correctness. If you're out of power for too long, then you just get worse and worse about how important your own ideas are.
