Eternal Mistake

"The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant growth, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal."
—Aleister Crowley, The Confessions of Aleister Crowley, 1929
