A JOURNAL OF EXTREMITY

YUKIO MISHIMA, "THE TEMPLE OF THE GOLDEN PAVILION"

“This,” I thought, “is a mundane world. Now that the world has ended, people are being driven about under that light by evil thoughts. Innumerable couples are gazing at each other under that light, and in their nostrils is the smell of the deed that is like death, which already is pressing directly on them. At the thought that these countless lights are all obstructive lights, my heart is comforted. Please let the evil that is in my heart increase and multiply indefinitely, so that it may correspond in every particular with the vast light before my eyes! Let the darkness of my heart, in which that evil is enclosed, equal the darkness of the night, which encloses those countless lights.”

Billy Wilder, "Double Indemnity"
