Existence, by Arthur Schopenhauer

“…existence…is a constant hurrying of the present into the dead past, a constant dying…it is clear that, as our walking is admittedly merely a constantly prevented falling, the life of our body is only a constantly prevented dying, an ever postponed death:finally, in the same way, the activity of our mind is a constantly deferred ennui. Every breath we draw wards off the death that is constantly intruding upon us.”
Arthur Schopenhauer
