"To teach how to live without certainty,and yet without being paralysed by hesitation, is perhaps the chief thing that philosophy, in our age, can still do for those who study it."
History of western philosophy , Bertrand Russell
"It is because so much happens. Too much happens. That's it. Man performs, engenders, so much more than he can or should have to bear. That's how he finds that he can bear anything. That's it. That's what is so terrible. That he can bear anything, anything."
Light in August, Faulkner
