This is what is known as Life
We are all equal in our capacity for error and suffering. Only those who don’t feel don’t experience pain; and the highest, most notable and most prudent men are those who experience and suffer precisely what they foresaw and what they disdained. This is what is known as Life.
Bernardo Soares, „The Book of Disquiet“ (from Text 245)
