"Should we go under - which is likely - then we must act such that we don’t go under as though we had never existed at all. The terrible forces with which we’re confronted are preparing to annihilate us; of course they can prevent that we ever existed, the impression our will made on the world. But there is a realm in which they are powerless. They cannot prevent us from clearly comprehending the object of our endeavours, so that even if our will cannot be fulfilled, at least we clearly desired and did not blindly wish"
Simone Weil in: La Révolution prolétarienne from 25th August 19331
