Life can only be understood backwards;
but it must be lived forwards.
To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily.
To not dare is to lose oneself.
Life is not a problem to be solved
But a reality to be experienced.
The supreme paradox of all thought is the attempt to discover something that thought cannot think.
