He who can rise superior to circumstances, crises, or vicissitudes is an admirable character, but we deem him hardly human. Thus have we hypnotized ourselves into a negative complex. But the really great ones are not supermen, they are truly men. It is for us to be what we divinely are; this the sages have perceived and accomplished.
