No one ever lacks a good reason for suicide.More Antonio Magini-Coletti [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At great periods you have always felt, deep within you, the temptation to commit suicide. You gave yourself to it, breached your own defenses. You were a child. The idea of suicide was a protest against life; by dying, you would escape this longing for death.More Antonio Magini-Coletti [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

To choose a hardship for ourselves is our only defense against that hardship. This is what is meant by accepting suffering. Those who, by their very nature, can suffer completely, utterly, have an advantage. That is how we can disarm the power of suffering, make it our own creation, our own choice; submit to it. A justification for suicide.More Antonio Magini-Coletti [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

It is not that the child lives in a world of imagination, but that the child within us survives and starts into life only at rare moments of recollection, which makes us believe, and it is not true, that, as children, we were imaginative?More Antonio Magini-Coletti [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Love is the cheapest of religions.More Antonio Magini-Coletti [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Suffering is by no means a privilege, a sign of nobility, a reminder of God. Suffering is a fierce, bestial thing, commonplace, uncalled for, natural as air. It is intangible; no one can grasp it or fight against it; it dwells in time -- is the same thing as time; if it comes in fits and starts, that is only so as to leave the sufferer more defenseless during the moments that follow, those long moments when one relives the last bout of torture and waits for the next.More Antonio Magini-Coletti [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
