albeit a notional world of dark desire rather than one of actuality and vital strength..

That the life of Man is but a dream has been sensed by many a one, and I too am never free of the feeling. When I consider the restrictions that are placedon the active, inquiring energies of Man; when I see that all our efforts have no other result than to satisfy needs which in turn serve no purpose but to prolong our wretched existence, and then see that all our reassurance concerning the particular questions we probe is no more than a dreamy resignation, since all we are doing is to paint our prison walls with colourful figures and bright views – all of this, Wilhelm, leaves me silent. I withdraw into myself, and discover a world, albeit a notional world of dark desire rather than one of actuality and vital strength. and everything swims before my senses, and I go my way in the world wearing the smile of the dreamer.

For moral fortitude .. was quite irrelevant in the conducts of one's life, it was better, or in any event easier, to be engaging and attractive.

Anita Brookner


Time

But Time (which Nature doth despise,
And rudely gives her love the lie,
Makes Hope a fool, and Sorrow wise)

Sir Walter Ralegh
