My dear,

He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

He who leaves all rational behind finds himself overwhelmingly free to do anything. For rational and irrational cease to exist. For the man ceases to be restrained by culture and it’s ways… For the man is free. Having gotten rid of being human, he’s also gotten ridden of the pain of being human.

Falsely yours,
Samuel Johnson
