The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness.
I regard you with an indifference
closely bordering on aversion.
line by Robert Louis Stevenson
Nature is neither kind nor unkind. She is neither against suffering nor for it . . . The total amount of suffering per year in the natural world is beyond all decent contemplation. During the minute that it takes me to compose this sentence, thousands of animals are being eaten alive, many others are running for their lives, whimpering with fear, others are being slowly devoured from within by rasping parasites, thousands of all kinds are dying of starvation, thirst and disease . . . The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.
If we understand these commercials correctly, the primary function of human females is making important decisions about moistening creams and lotions.

Truth can be like a large, bothersome fly – brush it away and it returns buzzing.
