Their Eyes Are Empty

They do not believe in anything. Their organ with which they believe has atrophied...Haven’t you seen them? Their eyes are empty. And they think every minute how not to be sold too cheap, how to sell themselves for a higher price! Everybody paid them for every movement of their soul! They know that “they are born to some purpose”! That they “have a calling”! For they live “only once”! How can such ones believe in anything?

Andrei Tarkovsky, Stalker (1979).
