Context

“But superstitions are not without their value. The snail's shell is a superstition, slugs have no shells and thrive just as well. But a snail without a shell would not be a slug unless it had also the slug's indifference to a shell.
VII Life is one long process of getting tired. VIII My days run through me as water through a sieve. IX Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises. X Life is eight parts cards and two parts play, the unseen world is made manifest to us in the play.” source
