Therefore he gives man hope, in reality it is the worst of all evils, because it prolongs the torments of man.

A weird time in which we are alive. We can travel anywhere we want, even to other planets. And for what? To sit day after day, declining in morale and hope. Falling into an interminable ennui. And meanwhile, the others are busy. They are not sitting helplessly waiting.
When you have plenty of good strong hating you don’t need hope because the hating will be enough to nourish you.
To hope means to be ready at every moment for that which is not yet born, and yet not become desperate if there is no birth in our lifetime.
