THERE IS MUCH TO BE SAID FOR CONTENTMENT AND PAINLESSNESS…

June 13th, 2017

… for this bearable and submissive days, on which neither pain nor pleasure cry out, on which everything only whispers and tiptoes around. But the worst of it it is that I cannot endure. After a short time it fills me with irrepressible loathing and nausea. Then in desperation, I have to escape into other regions, if possible on the road of pleasure, or, if that cannot be, on the road of pain. (Steppenwolf, Hermann Hesse)
