"And openly I pledged my heart to the grave and suffering earth, and often in the sacred night I promised to love it faithfully unto death, without fear, with its heavy load of fatality, and to despise none of its enigmas. Thus I bound myself to it with a mortal bond."
~Holderlin’s Empedocles, as quoted in Albert Camus’s Notebooks ‘42-‘51
