    Oh, how transitory is man, that even in the peace where finds real confirmation of his existence, where he makes the one true impress of his personality in the memories, in the souls of those he loves, that even there he must fade and vanish, and how soon!
    I often lie down to sleep whishing -yes, sometimes hoping not to wake up again; and the next morning I open my eyes, again see the sun and feel wretched. What is man, that celebrated demigod! Does he not lack powers just where he needs them most? And when he soars with joy, or sinks into suffering, is he not in both cases held back and restored to dull, cold consciousness at the very moment where he longs to lose himself in the fullness of the Infinite?
