How hateful is the light of day to me, And all the weary tasks of daily life

How hateful is the light of day to me,
And all the weary tasks of daily life.
Without the faith, which ever led me on,
And gave me hope through thickest clouds of pain!

Bertrand Russell, on giving up faith in God

in Ray Monk, Bertrand Russell (vol.1), p.40
