The Daily Dick: Musings from the Greatest Novel Ever
"Give not thyself up, then, to fire, lest it invert thee, deaden thee; as for the time it did me. There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness."
Musing: The Try-Works chapter ends here with a warning. Look not into the darkness, fellow humans. Darkness can make us less alive to the world. But the last line is an odd one for me. There are things we can know that are sad, and there is sadness that can grow mad? I almost hate to think too much on this.
