There is an infinite amount of hope in the universe… but not for us.

A scorpion asks a frog to take him across the river on his back, but the frog refuses at first because he fears the scorpion might sting him halfway through the swim. The scorpion makes a very logical argument in response, "Why would I sting you? If I do, I can't swim, so I will drown. It also hardly seems justified to repay your kindness in such a way." Upon hearing this, the frog agrees and starts taking the scorpion across the river. Sure enough, as soon as they reach the halfway point, the frog feels a sharp thrust penetrate his back. The poison slowly sleeps through his blood stream and as they slowly sink into the water, he manages to look up at the scorpion and ask, "Why?" The scorpion smiles and replies, "I am a scorpion. It is in my nature."
“Yes, alone we are, deeply alone, and always, in store for us, a layer of loneliness even deeper. There is nothing we can do to dispose of that. No, loneliness shouldn’t surprise us, as astonishing to experience as it may be. You can try yourself inside out, but all you are then is inside out and lonely instead of inside in and lonely. My stupid, stupid Merry dear, stupider even than your stupid father, not even blowing up buildings helps. It’s lonely if there are buildings and it’s lonely if there are buildings and it’s lonely if there are no buildings. There is no protest to be lodged against loneliness⎯not all the bombing campaigns in history have made a dent in it. The most lethal of manmade explosives can’t touch it. Stand in awe not of Communism, my idiot child, but of ordinary, everyday loneliness.”
― Philip Roth, American Pastoral
