My dear,

The fear of becoming a ‘has-been’ keeps some people from becoming anything.

The fear holds them steady. They, to their delight, cannot move backwards if they hold steady. But they fail to realize that they can’t move forward either.

… Only those who remain unsteady, forever dwelling in fear and the unknown, move forward. Only they walk on the on the unlit path called life.

Falsely yours,
Eric Hoffer
