Re: Original Quotes

A life dedicated to anything will deteriorate in bitterness, discontented with the picture of one's own making. No matter how you frame it, life is one great forgery after another.

As many nooses as defeats in this temporal world
As much happiness as death in this miserable world

Re: Original Quotes

Speaketh the Daemon--

"Beyond these gentle fields and meadows, beyond these crystal streams and cool lakes, beyond these green hills and majestic mountains, Paradise awaits you, adventurous Friend. Assuming, of course, you avoid the quicksand traps, the poisoned wells, the venomous serpents, the sadistic natives, the crumbling treacherous cliffs and the great hungry roaming predators."

No, you won't.

Re: Original Quotes

"And why shouldn't he drink? Could they give him one good reason? The problem was that people started thinking they would live forever if they made it into their thirties relatively intact, and his friends were no exception to that. There was Roger, that once wild man, looking at him contemptuously. Rog had only had one in moderation, yes moderation that slow killer. It wasn't fashionable to be real moralists though, so they became passive aggressive ones. He drank more rum and looked right back at them."

Re: Original Quotes

It used to amaze me that we let corrupt and ignorant politicians dictate our laws and our life. But these days I suspect entropy can explain it. After all, our physical bodies are running down as well as the world around us, so why should we even care about such vermin? Sailors on a sinking ship seldom concern themselves with the rat-infested hold.

Re: Original Quotes

The extraordinary of everyday life: how everyone manages to forget their burning tears and lacerating wounds in time to wake up for another beating.

"So in the end it remains advisable to accept whatever comes, to behave like an inert mass even if one feels oneself being swept away, not to be lured into a single unneccesary step, to regard others with the gaze of an animal, to feel no remorse, in short to crush with one's own hand any ghost of life that subsists, that is, to intensify the final quiet of the grave still further and let nothing beyond that endure." ---Franz Kafka, Resolutions
