“If our life were without end and free from pain, it would possibly not occur to anyone to ask why the world exists.” – Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Representation (trans. Payne)

  1. I think we’d find a way to make ourselves miserable enough to provide a reason for questioning the meaning of life.

    I’m trying to write a synopsis. That’s reason enough right there.

  2. You have my sympathy. I do not like writing synopses. The best synopsis I can can ever come up with is, “Just read the damn book.” That is deemed wildly insufficient in publishing circles.
