Quote by Japanese Proverb
You are wise to climb Mt. Fuji, but a fool to do it twice.
This quote suggests that it is wise and worthwhile to have certain experiences, such as climbing the famous and challenging Mt. Fuji. However, it implies that it would be foolish to repeat the same experience multiple times since the novelty and excitement diminish with each repetition. It encourages individuals to seek new and diverse adventures rather than continuously recreating past endeavors. Ultimately, it emphasizes the value of variety and exploring new horizons in life.
Anyone who considers himself in this way will be seized with terror and, discovering that the mass nature has given him supports itself between two abysses of infinity and nothingness, he will tremble in the face of these marvels; and I believe that as his curiosity changes to admiration, he will be more disposed to contemplate them in silence then search them out with presumption.For, finally, what is man in nature? He is nothing in comparison with the infinite, and everything in comparison with nothingness, a middle term between all and nothing. He is infinitely severed from comprehending the extremes; the end of things and their principle are for him invincibly hidden in an impenetrable secret; he is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he arises and the infinity into which he is engulfed.http://www.wsu.edu/~dee/ENLIGHT/PENSEES.HTM
