The Human Condition

Just imagine a number of men in chains,
and all condemned to die,
some of whom each day have their throats cut before the eyes of others.
Those who remain see their own condition in that of their fellows
and observing one another with grief and without hope, await their turn.
That is the image of the human condition.
-Blaise Pascal (1623—1662)
