“The Edge… There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.” –Hunter S. Thompson
Going to the edge is not how we’re wired.
Our internal, anti-vertigo systems tells us to stay back.
Yet Kurt Vonnegut says “I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.”
Want to grow? Envision a new possibility or future? Step into your own promised land?
You have to go to the edge to accomplish it.
Perhaps all progress depends on consistent edginess.
“Come to the edge, he said. They said: We are afraid. Come to the edge, he said. They came. He pushed them and they flew. ” –Guillaume Apollinaire
