Men have an extraordinarily erroneous opinion of their position in nature;
and the error is ineradicable.
The suspicious mind believes more than it doubts.
It believes in a formidable and ineradicable evil lurking in every person.
The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide. In this sense, truth, even if it does not prevail in public, possesses an ineradicable primacy over all falsehoods.
If there is a meaning in life at all, then there must be a meaning in suffering.
Suffering is an ineradicable part of life, even as fate and death. Without suffering and death, human life cannot be complete.
