God and Man

“Life is pain, life is fear, and man is unhappy. Everything is now pain and fear. Man loves life now because he loves pain and fear. That’s how it’s been. Life is given in return for pain and fear now, and that’s the whole deception. But man is still not really man. There will come a new man, happy and proud. He who doesn’t care whether he lives or dies—he’ll be the new man. He who conquers pain and fear—will become God. And then the old God will no longer exist.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Devils (Aleksei Nilych Kirillov)
