Journey to the End of the Night


The worst part is wondering how you’ll find the strength tomorrow, 
to go on doing what you did today and have been doing for much too long, 
where you’ll find the strength for all that stupid running around, 
those projects that come to nothing, 
those attempts to escape from crushing necessity, 
which always founder and serve only to convince you one more time that destiny is implacable, 
that every night will find you down and out, 
crushed by the dread of more and more sordid and insecure tomorrows.

― Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Journey to the End of the Night

This picture makes stories start forming in my head... I like it.

I recently watched the film, "Gaslight," made in 1944. Here are a few lines from it:

Paula Alquist:
This night will be a long night.

Brian Cameron:
But it will end. It's starting to clear.
In the morning, when the sun rises...
sometimes it's hard to believe
there ever was a night.
You'll find that, too.
