To LIVE AND EXPERIENCE.  If we observe how some people can deal with their experiences their unimportant, everyday experiences so that these become soil which yields fruit thrice a year; whilst others and how many!  are driven through the surf of the most exciting adventures, the most diversified movements of times and peoples, and yet always remain light, always remain on the surface, like cork; we are finally tempted to divide mankind into a minority (minimality) of those who know how to make much out of little, and a majority of those who know how to make little out of much; indeed, we even meet with the counter sorcerers who, instead of making the world out of nothing, make a nothing out of the world.
