It is for a refusal that we are alive in the world, for being a cliff in the sea of time against which the infinite waves break becoming foam. Our word is no.

Life is the price we pay so that our being can exist.

Pär Fabian Lagerkvist, born 23 May 1891, Sun in Gemini, Moon in Scorpio, Swedish author.
