Faulkner and Illusion of Philosophers and Fools

"I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might
forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying
to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even
fought. The field reveals to a man his own folly and despair, and victory
is an illusion of philosophers and fools."


-- William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury (affliliate link)
