The Nature of Knowledge [Zitat]

"Of what a strange nature is knowledge? It clings to the mind, when it has once seized on it, like a lichen on the rock. I wished sometimes to shake off all thought and feeling; but I learnt that there was but one means to overcome the sensation of pain and that was death - a state which I feared yet did not understand."*

*Mary Shelley: Frankenstein.Richmond: Oneworld Classics 2008, S.99
