"The world rolls round forever like a mill.
It grinds out life and death and good and ill.
It has no purpose, heart, nor mind, nor will."

-185...summat

" O melancholy Brothers, dark, dark, dark!
O battling in black floods without an ark!
O spectral wanderers of unholy Night!
My soul hath bled for you these sunless years,
With bitter blood-drops running down like tears:
Oh dark, dark, dark, withdrawn from joy and light!

My heart is sick with anguish for your bale;
Your woe hath been my anguish; yea, I quail
And perish in your perishing unblest.
And I have searched the highths and depths, the scope
Of all our universe, with desperate hope
To find some solace for your wild unrest.

And now at last authentic word I bring,
Witnessed by every dead and living thing;
Good tidings of great joy for you, for all:
There is no God; no Fiend with names divine
Made us and tortures us; if we must pine,
It is to satiate no Being's gall.

It was the dark delusion of a dream,
That living Person conscious and supreme,
Whom we must curse for cursing us with life;
Whom we must curse because the life he gave
Could not be buried in the quiet grave,
Could not be killed by poison or the knife.

This little life is all we must endure,
The grave's most holy peace is ever sure,
We fall asleep and never wake again;
Nothing is of us but the mouldering flesh,
Whose elements dissolve and merge afresh
In earth, air, water, plants, and other men. "

T.S.Eliot has a good one about galaxies being like blind old washerwomen in the hurley-burley moving randomly about the empty, windswept parkinglot gropping for their escaped laundry.

Wallace is not suicidal in the least.

Depression and suicide-thoughts are the bailiwick of the mentally-gifted. Of the high IQers.

Wallesch is blessedly a dummy.

Good observation there Herbert.
My self would find it far to much of an effort to commit suicide being bone idle by nature.

correct about that one the gifted and smart ones are wired different, and quite often they begin to believe they are what is going on in their heads, when in fact that is complete disillusion.
