W. H. Auden

A Quote by Michael Jackson, 1940 on suffering, torture, banality, banality of suffering, auden, and w h auden

The most conspicuous thing about suffering is, as W.H. Auden once observed, its banality. The day is green, the sun is shinging, someone is eating, or opening a window, the torturer's horse is scatching its innocent behind on a tree, and in a mere second someone we love is dead.
