"No, I am sure he has not taken his life. He is still alive, listens to the world beneath his window and the hum of human life from which he knows that he is excluded. But he has not killed himself, for a glimmer of belief still tells him that he is to drink this frightening suffering in his heart to the dregs, and that it is of this suffering he must die.” Herman Hesse, The Steppenwolf
