For my part I see life as the curse. I regret that life exists. No mortal mind can advance even the weakest argument in defense of life. I regret that the Materialist is mistaken. I regret that death does not end all. I wish that death would bring one long and dreamless sleep. but alas, my experience have proved conclusively to me that –“dust thou art and to dust returneth”– was not written of the Soul.
