The Third Alternative

It is sometimes a mistake to climb;
it is always a mistake never even to make the attempt.
If you do not climb, you will not fall.
This is true.
But is it that bad to fail, that hard to fall?
Sometimes you wake, and sometimes, yes, you die.
But there is a third alternative.

[ TODD ]
And sometimes, when you fall, you learn to fly.

[ Neil Gaiman | The Sandman | Fables and Reflections ]


Thanks, Scout 🙂

  1. @tequilabreath: is it because of the choosing between/among alternatives or the morpheus thing? 🙂

    @Scoutie: hahaha. i need to debounce this decision. kelangan yata ng magtutulak. :))

  2. or, baka kailangan mo ng parachute para di masyado nakaka-tense.

    speaking of, si celine gusto ng seryosong flying lessons. at dahil delikado, pumayag lang ako kung sabay kaming mag-aaral sa flight school. nag-iipon na sya. 🙂

  3. first things first, i think we’re forgetting this very very important thing — acrophobic ako hahaha. so imagine the terror i’m feeling tungkol sa usapang ganito. :p
