The Man who Laughs - Victor Hugo

This quote was added by malevolarky
To escape was now his whole thought - to escape from what? From everything. On all sides life seemed to enclose him like a horrible wall. If he could have fled from all things, he would have done so. But children know nothing of that breaking from prison which is called suicide. He was running. He ran on for an indefinite time, but fear dies with lack of breath.
