"Those savages of whom it is recounted, that they have no other longing than to die,
or rather, they no longer have even that longing, but death has a longing for them,
and they abandon themselves to it, or rather, they do not even abandon themselves,
but fall into the sand on the shore and never get up again [...]
Anyone who might collapse without cause and remain lying on the ground is dreaded
as though he were the Devil, it is because of the example, it is because of the stench of
truth that would emanate from him [...]
And yet the fear! How people do always carry their own enemy, however powerless he
is, within themselves."

{Franz Kafka, frm The Savages
