18. We cannot cling to both what we have and leap for what we want. The past is secure because we know the outcome. But if in that knowing we are not fulfilled, or we have learned what we needed to learn, then it is time to let the known get swept behind us in the river of life, and dive into the deep abyss of the unknown.
