Question: What quote, poem, or piece of writing do you think Loki resonates strongly with?
I have a bit of an obsession with quotes, so I have several pinterest boards dedicated solely to quotes. One of those boards contains quotes related to Loki. So, here are some of those quotes that I feel work best for the question today:
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Loki is a god that dispels illusions, and that is not normally a comfortable process.
This is definitely one that I feel resonates strongly with how I perceive Loki, as he is always part of the liminal, and that is not a quiet or calm place.
Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favorite authors – he wrote Fight Club, Lullaby, Survivor, Choke, and several other books that fall into the category of transgressive fiction. If there is any particular author that I think would jive well with Loki it would be Palahniuk, as the man essentially created an entirely new genre of fiction. Palahniuk never shies away from even the most controversial of topics, and he doesn’t spare readers from any nitty-gritty details.
That said, this quote from him definitely seems like the way Loki’s knowledge comes to us – through the experience of living, which often requires we act in stupid ways until we figure out the smart ways through the situations we encounter.
While I have many more quotes on my Pinterest board, these are the ones that resonate the most with me today. What other quotes do you think I should add?
