“If life is a punishment, one should wish for an end; if life is a test, one should wish it to be short.”
Bernardin de Saint Pierre, Paul and Virginia by Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, Fiction, Literary

“Death, my son, is a good thing for all men; it is the night for this worried day that we call life. It is in the sleep of death that finds rest for eternity the sickness, pain, desperation, and the fears that agitate, without end, we unhappy living souls.”
Bernardin De Saint-Pierre, Paul et Virginie

“There is never but one pleasant side to this human life. Like the globe on which we turn, our own rapid rotation is but one day, and a part of this day cannot receive light, so that the other part will not be delivered into darkness.”
Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, Paul et Virginie
