May Rest

by Isabella Knapp

… our walking is admittedly merely a constantly prevented falling,
the life of our body is only a constantly prevented dying,
an ever-postponed death: finally, in the same way,
the activity of our mind is a constantly deferred ennui.
We pursue our life, however, with great interest
and much solicitude as long as possible,
as we blow out a soap-bubble as long and as large as possible …
although we know perfectly well …
that it will burst.
(Arthur Schopenhauer, The world as Will and Idea)
