Julia Kristeva Sayings: For the space that engrosses the deject, the excluded, is never one, nor homogeneous, nor For the space that engrosses the deject, the excluded, is never one, nor homogeneous, nor totalizable, but essentially divisible, fold-able, and catastrophic. A deviser of territories, languages, works, the deject never stops demarcating his universe whose fluid confines- for they are constituted of a non-object, the abject- constantly question his solidity and impel him to start afresh.

Julia Kristeva Sayings: The clean and proper (in the sense of incorporated and incorporable) becomes filthy, the sought-after The clean and proper (in the sense of incorporated and incorporable) becomes filthy, the sought-after turns into banished, fascination into shame. Then, forgotten time crops up suddenly and condenses into a flash of lightning an operation that, if it were though out, would involve bringing together the two opposite terms but, on account of that flash, is discharged like thunder. The time of abjection is double: a time of oblivion and thunder, of veiled infinity and the moment when revelation bursts forth.
Julia Kristeva Sayings: Abjection is above all ambiguity. Because, while releasing a hold, it does not radically cut Abjection is above all ambiguity. Because, while releasing a hold, it does not radically cut off the subject from what threatens it

Julia Kristeva Sayings: The phobic has no other object than the abject. But that word, "fear"- a fluid The phobic has no other object than the abject. But that word, "fear"- a fluid haze an elusive clamminess- no sooner has it cropped up than it shades off like a mirage and permeates all words of the language with nonexistence, with a hallucinatory, ghostly glimmer.
