The greatest enemy of the human progress is the presupposition… Faith from that point of view becomes indolence of thought.

Indifference even is often superior to dogmatic faith. The believer wants to believe without knowing. Therefore, whatever may be the question, doubt is better than the perpetual affirmation, better than the renunciation of all personal initiative, which is called faith. Man has too often, all through history, rested his dignity upon errors… The truth is not always so fair as the dream, but its advantage is that it is true.
In the domain of thought there is nothing more moral than truth; and when truth cannot be secured through positive knowledge, nothing is more moral than doubt. Doubt is dignity of mind.

We must therefore drive out of ourselves the blind respect for certain principles, for certain beliefs. In the first place, it is a picture of force in its wildest and most unconquerable form; it is a display, a luxury of power, of which nothing else can give an idea; and it lives, moves, tosses, everlastingly without aim. Sometimes we might say that the sea is animated, that it palpitates and breathes, that it is an immense heart, whose powerful and tumultuous heaving we see; but what makes us despair here is that all this effort, this ardent life, is spent to no purpose.
This heart of the world beats without hope; from all this rocking, all this collision of the waves, there results only a little foam stripped off by the wind. I remember that, sitting on the beach once, I watched the serried waves rolling towards me. They came without interruption from the expanse of the sea, roaring and white. Behind the one dying at my feet I noticed another; and further behind that one, another; and further still, another and another — a multitude.
L'esquisse mystérieuse by Erckmann-Chatrian
At last, as far as I could see, the whole horizon seemed to rise and roll on towards me. There was a reservoir of infinite, inexhaustible forces there.

How deeply I felt the impotency of man to arrest the effort of that whole ocean in movement! A dike might break one of these waves; it could break hundreds and thousands of them; but would not the immense and indefatigable ocean gain the victory? The ocean neither works nor produces; it moves.
It does not give life; it contains it, or rather it gives and takes it with the same indifference.
It is the grand, eternal cradle rocking its creatures. If we look down into its fathoms, we see its swarming life.
Esquisse De La France Summary
There is not one of its drops of water which does not hold living creatures, and all fight one another, persecute one another, avoid and devour one another… The ocean itself gives us the spectacle of a war, a struggle without truce… And yet this tempest of the water is but the continuation, the consequence, of the tempest of the air; is it not the shudder of the winds which communicates itself to the sea? There is nothing which is not carried away by the whirlpool of cosmic existence. Earth itself, man, human intelligence, nothing can offer us anything fixed to which it would be possible to hold on — all these are swept away in slower, but not less irresistible, undulations…" Pg.
Even so is it with life, tossed about on waves of pleasure and of pain: if one marks these undulations with lines, and if the line of pain lengthens more than the other, it means that we are going down.
Life, in order to exist, needs to be a perpetual victory of pleasure over pain. They all agree in calling upon the most formidable sanction imaginable; to those who have transgressed their orders, in one way or another, they promise eternal suffering, and threaten them with horrors far beyond any which the imagination of the most furious man dreams of inflicting upon his most deadly enemy.
In this, as in many other points, religions are in total disagreement with the spirit of our time; but it is strange to think that they are still followed by a great many philosophers and metaphysicians.

Imagining God as the most terrible of all powers, one comes to the conclusion that, in his anger, he must inflict the most terrible of punishments. Finally, as he is hypothetically the supreme intelligence, we cannot believe that he would do anything unreasonable. Now, for what reason would he cause the evil-doer to suffer?

Over the centuries, translation has been involved in many key sectors of activity in Africa ranging from politics and administration to culture and religion. Translation in this context has involved a great variety of language combinations between African languages, European languages and Arabic, as well as some traditional forms of intersemiotic translation. The history of translation in Africa reflects the rich and complex history of the continent and the various linguistic and cultural contacts and exchanges that have shaped and defined its destiny.
