One cannot stay on the summit forever –
One has to come down again.
So why bother in the first place?

Just this:
What is above knows what is below
But what is below does not know what is above.

One climbs, one sees -
One descends and sees no longer
But one has seen!

There is an art of conducting one’s self in
the lower regions by the memory of
what one saw higher up.

When one can no longer see,
one does at least still know.
