“Not the least of the torments which plague our existence is the constant pressure of time, which never lets us so much as draw a breath but pursues us all like a taskmaster with a whip. It ceases to persecute only him it has delivered over to boredom.”

-Arthur Shopenhauer, ‘On the Suffering of the World”

Caipifruta

It’s obvious Arthur had not yet considered the option of delivering oneself over to lying on a beach with a kiwi caïpifruta.

“You’re a long way off becoming a saint

So long as you suffer from any complaint

But if you don’t, there’s no denying

The chances are that you’re not trying.”

W.H. Auden

Coughing

“I’ve always told people that for each person there is a sentence – a series of words- which has the power to destroy him. (…) I realised (this comes years after the first realisation) that another sentence exists, another series of words, which will heal the person. If you’re lucky you will get the second; but you can be certain of getting the first: that is the way it works.”

Philip K. Dick – “Valis”

“You don’t know what it is. You’ve been sitting

at home for days, like a shadow of your shadow.

The doctor comes. Taps your frame

and finds nothing. You agree.”

-Leonard Nolens “Manieren van Leven” (My Translation)
