Everything’s going to get worse in time, because as you know, it does!
We all fall apart in the end.
Everything falls apart, institutions, buildings, nations, it all crumbles.
I would rather say that the people who have hope in the future are the miserable people, because they’re like donkeys chasing carrots dangled before their noses from sticks attached to their collars.
And they pursue and they pursue in vain, always hoping that tomorrow will be the great thing. And therefore incapable of enjoying themselves today.
People who live for the future never get there, because when their plans mature, they are not there to enjoy them.
The whole idea you see is, everything’s falling apart! So don’t try and stop it!
When you’re falling off a precipice it doesn’t do you any good to hang on to a rock that’s falling with you!
This is another case of our completely wasting our energy, in trying to prevent the world from falling apart!
Don’t do it! And then you’ll be able to do something!
Are not merrier than I
Here among the flowers I lie
No: I may not tell the best
Surely, friends, I could have guessed
Death was but the good king’s jest
It was hid so carefully
— G.K. Chesterton
