“Faith is the truth of passion. Since no passion is more true than another, faith is the truth of nothing.”
R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”
