By a lie, a man...annihilates his dignity as a man.
— Immanuel Kant

The finite is annihilated in the presence of the infinite, and becomes a pure nothing. So our spirit before God, so our justice before divine justice.
Blaise Pascal annihilating quote

Nature abhors annihilation.
— Marcus Tullius Cicero

The Eternal looked upon me for a moment with His eye of power, and annihilated me in His being, and become manifest to me in His essence. I saw I existed through Him.
— Rumi

Try as you will, you cannot annihilate that eternal relic of the human heart, love.
— annihilating quotation by Victor Hugo
