The greatest of criminals (Star Diaries) - Stanislaw Lem

This quote was added by ollijh
Yet what is burial but collaboration through a game of hide-and-seek? The point being to dispose of the body, as accomplices are won't to do; on the tombstones various inconsequential things are written, save the only one that is material: for if people would but dare to look the truth in the eye, they would be carving there instead a couple of the more pungent profanities, addressed to Mother Nature, for it is she who got us into this.
