Nurture adventure

At first glance nothing seems to be more contradictory than the tendencies of these two impulses, the one striving for change, and the other for immutability.*
(Friedrich Schiller)

We need both journeys: the outward into exploration and adventure, the inward into reflection and nurture. The both/and is where we find the strongest evidence of life.

(*From Friedrich Schiller’s On the Aesthetic Education of Man.)
