Hell is other people?

L’enfers, c’est les autres

Jean-Paul Sartre was obviously having an off-day when he wrote that particular quip … I can accept Je pense donc je suis (even though I’m surrounded by evidence that refutes that proposition) but it’s a bit of a stretch to claim that Hell is other people.

I can match that by proposing that Heaven is other people as well

What a load of existentialist guff!
