Jack London: “This Forgetfulness of Living”

Photographer Unknown, (This Forgetfulness of Living)

“There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive. This ecstasy, this forgetfulness of living, comes to the artist, caught up and out of himself in a sheet of flame.”

-Jack London, The Call of the Wild
