Sometimes "you cannot be satisfied with your life" and it goes on and on, or sometimes your life ends all at once after a "long rehearsal." Either way, if you don't challenge, you won't realize your limit or you won't gnash your teeth with frustration with your limit. Overcoming your limit with mortification will surely cause you to stand in a better viewing area than ever. Then, you'll find the slope you struggled to climb flat. From the author's "Life Has The Remaining Heat."
