stop trying?

January 26, 2008

The search for truth — be it the subjective truth of belief, the objective truth of reality, or the social truth of money or power — always confers, on the searcher who merits a prize, the ultimate knowledge of its non-existence. The grand prize of life goes only to those who bought tickets by chance.

The value of art is that it takes us away from here.

Fernando Pessoa, “The Book of Disquiet”, 361
