RKS Literature: Both God and Nature Unjust (Thomas Mann)

“God and nature were both unjust, they had their favourites, chose to be gracious at random, adorned one man with precarious honours and the next with an easy, but ordinary fate. And for the man that would act? For him justice was, on the one hand, a paralyzing weakness, the very essence of doubt, and on the other hand, it was a trumpet call to reckless deeds. In order to remain within the spirit of morality, man was constantly correcting one meaning of “justice” with the other-so how could there be anything absolute and radical about the concept? “

Thomas Mann, “The Magic Mountain”, 1914.
