My straining put into words.

But if a person has had the sense of the Call — the feeling that there’s an adventure for him — and if he doesn’t follow that, but remains in the society because it’s safe and secure, then life dries up. And then he comes to that condition in late middle age: he’s gotten to the top of the ladder, and found that it’s against the wrong wall.

  1. I worried about this when I was young too. Now that I’m old I realize that the all of the walls are connected around a square room and I can easily just run around to the other side once I get to the top.
