By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

—Confucius (via quotes-shape-us)

Act like a heavy mass even when one can feel oneself being blown away, not be tempted into taking a single unnecessary step, look at other people with animal eyes, feel no remorse - in short, physically suppress any spectral remnants of life. i.e. augment the ultimate quiet of the grave and allow nothing else to exist any more.

—Franz Kafka
