Man has many wishes that he does not really wish to fulfil, and it would be a misunderstanding to suppose the contrary. He wants them to remain wishes, they have value only in his imagination; their fulfilment would be a bitter disappointment to him. Such a desire is the desire for eternal life. If it were fulfilled, man would become thoroughly sick of living eternally, and yearn for death. L'homme a plusieurs souhaits qu'il ne souhaite pas vraiment réaliser, et ce serait une erreur de supposer le contraire. Il veut qu'ils demeurent des souhaits ; ils n'ont de valeur que dans son imagination ; leur réalisation serait pour lui une amère déception. Il en est ainsi avec le désir de la vie éternelle. S'il était réalisé, l'Homme deviendrait complètement dégoûté de vivre éternellement, et désirerait la mort.
