“Failure generates its own majesty. Defeat becomes a panoptic stain on the soul; it creates its own all-embracing pathos. Reverses engulf us in fleshy feelings of self-pity, sorrow, and apathy.

Cynically writing ourselves off as a failure, we are free to capitulate to the emptiness of our lives.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
