“What is called resignation is confirmed desperation” (Henry David Thoreau)

Escaping from freedom into the ecstasy of resignation and submission (1967):

Or another way to look at it: “Atheism is a ferocious system, that leaves nothing above us to excite awe, nor around us to awaken tenderness” (R. Hall).
