What to do...

"Profound boredom, drifting here and there in the abysses of our existence like a muffling fog, removes all things and men and oneself along with it into a remarkable indifference. This boredom reveals being as a whole." - Martin Heidegger

"Since boredom advances and boredom is the root of all evil, no wonder, then, that the world goes backwards, that evil spreads. This can be traced back to the very beginning of the world. The gods were bored; therefore they created human beings." - Soren Kierkegaard

“Boredom is rage spread thin” - Paul Tillich

“By his very success in inventing labor-saving devices modern man has manufactured an abyss of boredom that only the privileged classes in earlier civilizations have ever fathomed” - Lewis Mumford

"Boredom flourishes too, when you feel safe. It's a symptom of security." - Eugene Ionesco

"All man's troubles come from not knowing how to sit still in one room." - Blaise Pascal
