Quote 2316

We can regard our life as a uselessly disturbing episode in the blissful repose of nothingness... . It may be said of it: 'It is bad today and every day it will get worse, until the worst of all happens.' - Arthur Schopenhauer

Quote 2315

Life is a rainbow which also includes black - Yevgeny Yevtushenko

Quote 2314

I don't consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked - Leonard Cohen
