The Ancient Greeks flipped the modern conception of time on its head: instead of facing the future, the Ancient Greeks faced the past.
“It’s like having a bone stuck to your head that is just out of reach — you’re constantly walking towards it, but the target is moving.”

You don’t get a new you, you get a marginally improved you. And in the process, you miss out on a great adventure.

“The sides of the mountain sustain life, not the top.”
