Re: Fatalism or Natalism?

“It’s very queer business, you know. People are always going on morning, noon and night about how terrible life is, but they can’t bring themselves to put an end to it.”

“I can’t do it. I can’t go on. As I speak I seem to sense the hand of Destiny reaching for my throat and can feel it tightening its grip. For the love of God, sir, say I can stop.”

- from 'Jacques the Fatalist' (1796) by Denis Diderot..

I have now finished my review of this book here: NEMONYMOUS 123456
