If the descent is thus sometimes performed in sorrow, it can also take place in joy. This word is not too much. Again I fancy Sisyphus returning toward his rock, and the sorrow was in the beginning. When the images of earth cling too tightly to memory, when the call of happiness becomes too insistent, it happens that melancholy rises in man's heart: this is the rock's victory, this is the rock itself. The boundless grief is too heavy to bear. These are our nights of Gethsemane. But crushing truths perish from being acknowledged. Thus, Oedipus at the outset obeys fate without knowing it. But from the moment he knows, his tragedy begins. Yet at the same time, blind and desperate, he realizes that the only bond linking him to the world is the cool hand of a girl. Then a tremendous remark rings out: "Despite so many ordeals, my advanced age and the nobility of my soul make me conclude that all is well." Sophocles' Oedipus, like Dostoevsky's Kirilov, thus gives the recipe for the absurd victory. Ancient wisdom confirms modern heroism.

That's a pretty backhanded complement subs.

Sisyphus was a very smart person; but, morally bankrupt. He committed some very serious crimes from the perspective of the ancient world. One version of the Sisyphus story has Sisyphus capturing Thanos after Zeus sent Thanos to drag Sisyphus to the underworld; after Sisyphus had insulted Zeus, if memory serves.

/ regardless of the story, Sisyphus ends up in the underworld. His punishment from Hades is to push a boulder up a hill forever

// so, to say that one is Sisyphean, implies that one is engaged in an endless task that is a punishment for past misdeeds.

/ are you saying that John Kerry was a very bad boy?

I think Penicillin   will take care of that, although you are going to have to figure out what to do with the bolder...

By kidnapping Thanos, no one could died and everyone became immortal like the gods.

Oh, even old Sissypuss doesn't do much boulder rolling these days, what with all the paperwork and safety classes one has to attend just to push boulders up hills. And every time you have one roll back to the bottom, all your certs get revoked because they were only for rolling boulders up hill. The uncontrolled descent violates the controlled ascent licensing.
