Re: Pessimistic Passage of the Day...

"What life is left him robs him of what reason is left him. Trifles or scourges - the passing of a fly or the cramps of the planet - horrify him equally. With his nerves on fire, he would like the earth to be made of glass, to smatter it to smithereens; and with what thirst he would fling himself toward the stars to reduce them to powder, one by one. . .Crime glistens in his eyeballs; his hands tighten in vain to strangle. Life is transmitted by leprosy : too many creatures for a single murderer. It is in the nature of the man who cannot kill himself to seek revenge against whatever enjoys existing. And failing, discarded Satan, he weeps, pounds his breast, bows his head; the blood he wanted to shed fails to redden his own cheeks whose pallor reflects his disgust with that secretion of hopes produced by the advancing species. His great dream was to destroy the days of Creations. . .he renounces his dream, collapses into himself, and yields to the elegy of his own failure: another order of excess is the result. His skin burns: fever fills the universe, his brain is on fire: the air is inflammable. His ills fill sidereal space; his griefs make the poles tremble. And whatever is allusion to existence, the most imperceptible breath of life, wrings from him a cry which compromises the music of the spheres and the movement of the stars."

---Flayed Alive, "A Short History of Decay" by E.M. Cioran

"Tell me how you want to die, and I'll tell you who you are. In other words, how do you fill out an empty life? With women, books, or worldly ambitions? No matter what you do, the starting point is boredom, and the end self-destruction. The emblem of our fate: the sky teeming with worms. Baudelaire taught me that life is the ecstasy of worms in the sun, and happiness the dance of worms."
---Tears and Saints, E. M. Cioran
