[at-l] Other Lessons of Life



I'll offer one more...

It costs so much to be a full human being that there are very few who
have the enlightenment or courage to pay the price.  One has to abandon
altogether the search for security and reach out to the risk of living with
both arms.  One has to embrace the workd as a lover!  One has to
accept pain as a condition of existence.  One has to court doubt and
darkness as the cost of knowing.  One needs a will stubborn in conflict,
but apt always to total acceptance of every consequence of living and
dying.
