Soon madness has worn you down. It’s easier to do what it says than argue. In this way, it takes over your mind. You no longer know where it ends and you begin. You believe anything it says. You do what it tells you, no matter how extreme or absurd. If it says you’re worthless, you agree. You plead for it to stop. You promise to behave. You are on your knees before it, and it laughs.

We knocked on the doors
of Hell’s darker chamber
pushed to the limit
we dragged ourselves in.

This was the truth at the core of my existence: this yawning emptiness, scantily clad in rage. It had been there all along.

For the rest, if you examine me, you will find nothing in me that is not slight, humble, strictly limited. I am a novice, a tiro, and have advanced but a step, no more, from the darkness of ignorance.

We’re blind moles. Creeping through the soil, feeling with our snouts. We know nothing. I perceived this… now I don’t know where to go. Screech with fear, only. Run away.

Alain gave a long, hollow laugh. Never had he such a precise feeling of his impotence. For him, the world was only peopled by empty shapes. It was enough to make you scream, to make you die.

What destroys a man more quickly than to work, think and feel without inner necessity, without any deep personal desire, without pleasure - as a mere automaton of duty?

To those in whom the will has turned and has denied itself, this — our world, which is so real, with all its suns and milky-ways — is nothing.
