The Dignity of Daring

“The man, who, being really on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world will not,

as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort and

encourages his old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone who will faithfully

and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he may endure the suffering and pass

courageously through it. Only to the extent that man exposes himself over and over again

to annihilation, can that which is indestructible arise within him.

In this lies the dignity of daring.”

― Karlfried Graf Durckheim
