Yukio Mishima – “The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea”

“Real danger is nothing more than just living. Of course, living is merely the chaos of existence, but more than that it’s a crazy mixed-up business of dismantling experience instant by instant to the point where the original chaos is restored, and taking strength from the uncertainty and fear that chaos brings to re-create existence instant by instant. You won’t find another job as dangerous as that. There isn’t any fear in existence itself, or any uncertainty, but living creates it.”
