Efforts henceforward follow without an object and therefore without a reward. If the imagination makes good this void—debasement. ’ And as to our own death, is it not the same? The object and the reward are in the future. Deprivation of the future—void, loss of equilibrium. That is why ‘to philosophise is to learn to die’. That is why ‘to pray is like a death’.
