Hell

Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.

— Aldous Huxley

I believe that I am in hell, therefore I am there.

— Arthur Rimbaud

I couldn’t claim that I have never felt the urge to explore evil, but when you descend into hell you have to be very careful.

— Kathleen Raine

To be in a world which is a hell, to be of that world and neither to believe in or guess at anything but that world is not merely hell but the only possible damnation: the act of a man damning himself. It may be – I hope it is – redemption to guess and perhaps perceive that the universe, the hell which we see for all its beauty, vastness, majesty, is only part of a whole which is quite unimaginable.

— William Golding
