A Space Between

“When I was young, I had to choose between the life of being and the life of doing.  I leapt at the latter like a trout to a fly.  But each deed you do, each act, binds you to itself and to its consequences, and makes you act again and yet again.  Then very seldom do you come upon a space between act and act, when you may stop and simply be.   Or wonder who, after all, you are.”

The Farthest Shore, Ursula Le Guin
