A Tuesday Thought

Keen insight from the mind of Denis Diderot (1713-1784), one of the leading lights of the Enlightenment:

"To attempt the destruction of our passions is the height of folly. What a noble aim is that of the zealot who tortures himself like a madman in order to desire nothing, love nothing, feel nothing, and who, if he succeeded, would end up a complete monster!"
