quoth the madman


He knocked my block off…
For many millennia, man has been striving after happiness; but he is not happy, why not? Because he cannot achieve it, because he does not know the way- both these reasons. Above all however, because in all our earthly lives there must not be ultimate happiness, but only the aspiration towards it, in the future: there has to be suffering, it is in the struggle between good and evil, that the spirit is forged.
~Andrei Tarkovsky
