Man is born as a quest. Man is not born as a complete being. A dog is born complete. A tree, a rock…. The whole of existence, except for man, has one similar thing: they are all complete. Only man is incomplete; hence man has an opening. Everything else is closed. A rose is a rose is a rose, but man may be a thousand and one things. A man can be a Judas, a man can be a Jesus. All the possibilities are open all the alternatives available.
So those who take their life for granted miss the whole point. Life is a guest, it is an inquiry, an inquiry into how to be total, how to be whole. This is dignity of man, this is his uniqueness: he can grow because he is not complete; he can blossom because he is not yet entire, he can learn, he can become.
