We Are Made of Glass

Different types of dangerous lives.– You have no idea what you are living through; you rush through life as if you were drunk and now and then fall down some staircase. But thanks to your drunkenness you never break a limb: your muscles are too relaxed and your brain too benighted for you to find the stones of these stairs as hard as we do! For us life is more dangerous: we are made of glass — woe unto us if we merely bump ourselves! And all is lost if we fall!1
