In the middle of the journey of our life 
                                                                                   I found myself astray in a dark wood 
                                                                                                               where the straight road had been lost.
                                                                                       - Dante, The Divine Comedy

 - What does it say to you?

It restates the negativeness of the universe. The hideous lonely emptiness of existence. 
The predicament of man forced to live in a barren, godless eternity like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void with nothing but waste, horror, and degradation, forming a useless, bleak straitjacket in a black, absurd cosmos.

- Play It Again, Sam (1972)

You're born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget. I'm living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't one.
