We are responsible to ourselves for our own existence; consequently we want to be the true helmsman of this existence and refuse to allow our existence to resemble a mindless act of chance.

From the moment I became pregnant, I feared the truth... about how and why. And I know that you feared it, too. [...]

“you can’t get the truth. you can’t. there’s a larger truth, though; that you can’t harness the forces of the cosmos, but you may find somebody else. you may find another human being. [...]"

Quote
So she had to satisfy herself with the idea of love—loving the loving of things whose existence she didn’t care at all about. Love itself became the object of her love. She loved herself in love, she loved loving love, as love loves loving, and was able, in that way, to reconcile herself with a world that fell so short of what she would have hoped for. It was not the world that was the great and saving lie, but her willingness to make it beautiful and fair, to live a once-removed life, in a world once-removed from the one in which everyone else seemed to exit.
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Quote
Everything that comes to be has some beginning, but what is eternal, being ungenerated did not have a beginning. But if it does not have a beginning it is unlimited, and if it is unlimited it is nowhere. For if it is anywhere, that in which it is is different from it, and so what-is will no longer be unlimited, since it is enclosed in something. ... And so, if what-is is eternal it is unlimited, but if it is unlimited it is nowhere, and if it is nowhere it is not. So if what-is is eternal, it is not at all.
Gorgias, Fragments, B3

For I do not exist: there exist but thousands of mirrors that reflect me. With every acquaintance I make, the population of phantoms resembling me increases.

we are born and the tear is no more than a scratch and it never scars over and it burns and it is a star giving off its own light, / the little wound never fades, the sign of the blood is never erased,
Octavio Paz, tr. by Eliot Weinberger, from The Poems of Octavio Paz; “Mutra”
