Confusion (from Latin confusĭo, -ōnis, noun of action from confundere "to pour together", or "to mingle together" also "to confuse") is the state of being bewildered or unclear in one’s mind about something.


  • When time itself shall be no more,
    And all things in confusion hurl'd,
    Music shall then exert it's power,
    And sound survive the ruins of the world
  • Should the whole frame of Nature round him break,
    In ruin and confusion hurled,
    He, unconcerned, would hear the mighty crack,
    And stand secure amidst a falling world.
  • Whatever I learned,
    Whatever I knew,
    Seems like those faded years of childhood that flew,
    Away in some dilemma,
    Always in some confusion,
    The purpose of this life,
    Seems like an illusion!
  • Let nothing be called natural
    In an age of bloody confusion
    Ordered disorder, planned caprice,
    And dehumanized humanity, lest all things
    Be held unalterable!
  • Lyin' awake in a cold, cold sweat
    Am I overdrawn, am I going in debt?
    It gets worse, the older that you get
    No escape from the state of confusion

    I'm in
    State of confusion
    I'm in

  • Men tighten the knot of confusion
Into perfect misunderstanding.
  • Outside the ordered universe [is] that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity—the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.
    • H.P. Lovecraft The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, in At The Mountains of Madness, p. 308.
  • We will never be brought to confusion, even in such a baffling and muddled world as ours, if we have a faith in a God of love as the ultimate power in the universe. The words "God is love" have this deep meaning: that everything that is against love is ultimately doomed and damned.
