Some suggestions for you :

What is it that I especially find utterly unendurable? That I cannot cope with, that makes me choke and faint? Bad air! Bad air! The approach of some ill-constituted thing; that I have to smell the entrails of some ill-constituted soul!

Every true faith is infallible. It performs what the believing person hopes to find in it. But it does not offer the least support for the establishing of an objective truth.

Basic insight regarding the nature of decadence: it's supposed causes are its consequences.

Nothing succeeds if prankishness has no part in it.
