When I am tired, it is easy to believe that my exhaustion is the reason I am depressed and lonely and uninspired. But when I am well-rested [sic], I can realize that these negative feelings are not a result of too little sleep. They are a result of my being a miserable, hopeless, misanthropic wretch.
I have found no better expression than "religious" for confidence in the rational nature of reality, insofar as it is accessible to human reason. Whenever this feeling is absent, science degenerates into uninspired empiricism.
To be ignorant of one's own ignorance is to be in an unprogressive, uninspired state of existence.
Siendo el esperar sentada la forma ma s muerta de la espera muerta, siendo el esperar la forma menos estimulante de muerte. To wait, seated in a chair, is the deadest form of dead anticipation, and waiting the most uninspired form of death.
