Umberto Eco

“...we never cease hoping--and thus did our Judge condemn us to suffer in saecula.'

Ferrante asked: 'But what is it that you hope for?'

You might as well ask what you will hope for yourself. ...You will hope that a wisp of wind, the slightest swell of the tide, the arrival of a single hungry leech, can return us, atom by atom, to the great Void of the Universe, where we would somehow again participate in the cycle of life.”
