“Man has never been able to move forward without leaving something behind” Quote from the movie Interstellar
“Man has never been able to move forward without leaving fear behind” – AngryAdmin
A drunken man who falls out of a cart, though he may suffer, does not die. His bones are the same as other people’s; but he meets the accident in a different way. (no fear) His spirit is in a condtion of security. He is not conscious of riding in the cart; neither is he conscious of falling of of it. Ideas of life, death, fear etc. cannot penetrate his breast; and so he does not suffer from contact with objective exsistences. And if such security is to be got from wine, how much more is to be got from Spontaneity?
