Emil Cioran: ‘I know peace only when my ambitions sleep’

“I know peace only when my ambitions sleep. Once they waken, anxiety repossesses me. Life is a state of ambition. The mole digging his tunnels is ambitious. Ambition is in effect everywhere, and we see its traces on the faces of the dead themselves.”

Emil Cioran
