    Because the priest must have like every dog his day
    Or keep us all awake with baying at the moon,
    We and our dolls being but the world were best away.

    In Western Europe people perish from the congestion and stifling closeness, but with us it is from the spaciousness.... The expanses are so great that the little man hasn’t the resources to orient himself.... This is what I think about Russian suicides.
