When something seems impossible to obtain despite every effort, it is an indication of a limit which cannot be passed on that plane and of the necessity for a change of level--a break in the ceiling. To wear ourselves out on the same level degrades us. It is better to accept the limit, to contemplate it and savour all its bitterness.
