Topic Nominated Pessimistic Passage of the Day...

Just imagine it: an online anthology of pessimistic quotations, assembled by Ligottians, growing daily like a (insert horrible simile here)... A collection of quotations devoted entirely to negativity! Taken from literature, philosophy, science, art -- any place where a solitary neigh-sayer has expressed the wretchedness of life, who has recorded the nightmares of the organism. I humbly submit the first quotation, to get things rolling doomward:

"The idea of a world where human life might be artificially prolonged has a nightmare quality yet gives no glimpse of anything beyond that slight delay. Death is waiting in the long run, made necessary by multiplying and teeming life."
-- Georges Bataille, Erotism: Death & Sensuality

"Reality is the shadow of the word." -- Bruno Schulz
