"Terror is as much a part of the concept of truth as runniness is of the concept of jam. We wouldn't like jam if it didn't, by its very nature, ooze. We wouldn't like truth if it wasn't sticky, if, from time to time, it didn't ooze blood." is a dictum by Jean Baudrillard found in Cool Memories.

Original French:

La terreur fait partie du concept de vérité comme la coulure fait partie du concept de confiture. Nous n'aimerions pas la ... Nous n'aimerions pas la vérité si elle ne poissait pas, si le sang n'en dégoulinait pas un jour ou l'autre.
