      What makes mankind tragic is not that they are the victims of nature, it is that they are conscious of it.

        But the truth was that he died from solitude, the enemy known but to few on this Earth, and whom only the simplest of us are fit to withstand. The brilliant Costaguanaro of the boulevards had died from solitude and want of faith in himself and others.

                    Who could tell what forms, what visions, what faces, what forgiveness he could see in the glow of the west!

                      Each blade of grass has its spot on earth whence it draws its life, its strength; and so is man rooted to the land from which he draws his faith together with his life.

                        Perhaps life is just that... a dream and a fear.

                            They wanted facts. Facts! They demanded facts from him, as if facts could explain anything.

                              I can't tell if a straw ever saved a drowning man, but I know that a mere glance is enough to make despair pause. For in truth we who are creatures of impulse are creatures of despair.

                                Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love - and to put its trust in life.

                                  For the great mass of mankind, the only saving grace needed is a steady fidelity to what is nearest to hand and heart for the short moment of each human effort.

                                    It's extraordinary how we go through life with eyes half shut, with dull ears, with dormant thoughts. Perhaps it's just as well; and it may be that it is this very dullness that makes life to the incalculable majority so supportable and so welcome.
