Excerpt from Studies in Pessimism: A Series of Essays

Unless seafaring is the direct and immediate object of life, our existence must entirely fail of its aim. It is absurd to look upon the enormous amount Of pain that abounds everywhere in the world, and originates in needs and necessities inseparable from life itself, as serving no purpose at all and the result of mere chance. Each separate misfortune, as it comes, seems, no doubt, to be something exceptional but misfortune in general is the rule.
