philosophy of life
Philosophy of Life

As flies to wanton boys

Are we to the gods,

They kill us for their sport

King Lear Act IV Sc 1 35-37

Pessimistic view of life

Life is to suffer at the hands of external forces

“…happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain”

Man a mere plaything of an impersonal and maligned fate
