“You’re living your life,” he said, “not just existing. Most people just exist. And they might think it’s crazy, but they don’t know what it’s like to see stars down to the horizon, a moon bright enough to read by, and waves high as mountains, bright as diamonds. You’re too awed to be scared. You look at it and think, Nobody, unless they risk it all, will be able to see what I’m seeing right now.”
This is an awesome example of how harsh we can be judging ourselves.
