On Unhappiness -- Joyce Carol Oates



http://pandemo.livejournal.com/677587.html

As Pascal observed in the 139th Pensée: ...all the unhappiness of men arises from one single fact, that they cannot stay quietly in their own chamber.

This Diary shall record whether such a "truth" is universal; or applies merely to the weak.
    -- Joyce Carol Oates in "Poe Posthumous" in her short story compilation Wild Nights, pages 11-12
