Cioran on Suicide

What saved me is the idea of suicide. Without the idea of suicide I would have surely killed myself. What allowed me to keep on living was knowing I had this option, always in sight... But really, without it I could have never endured life.

The impression of being stuck down here... For me the idea of suicide is linked with the idea of freedom. I realized that in life, very few people have understood, even really great writers haven't understood anything. People with talent, but who are worth nothing!

You can meet someone just like that in the streets or in a bistro, it's a revelation. It's someone who has went in-depth, who has tackled the great problem.

"Life without the courage for death is slavery" - Seneca
