“depair is the price one pays for setting oneself an impossible aim.
it is, one is told, the unforgivable sin, but it is a sin the corrupt
or evil man never practices.  he always has hope.  he never
reaches the freezing point of knowing absolute failure. only the
man of goodwill carries always in his heart this capacity for
damnation.”

The Heart of the Matter
Graham Greene
