I have protracted my work till most of those whom I wished to please have sunk into the grave, and success and miscarriage are empty sounds: I therefore dismiss it with frigid tranquillity, having little to fear or hope from censure or from praise.

Pain has its reasons, pleasure is totally indifferent.

It means nothing to me. I have no opinion about it, and I don't care.
