"Is this the hope of humanity? Human logic above faith?"
- The Author, Chapter XIII "Underworld"
“Perhaps the only goal on earth to which mankind is striving lies in this incessant process of attaining, in other words, in life itself, and not in the thing to be attained, which must always be expressed as a formula, as positive as twice two makes four, and such positiveness is not life, gentlemen,
but is the beginning of death.”
–Notes from Underground, Fyodor Dostoevsky
