Differences in the Dangerousness of Life. You don't know at all what you experience; you run through life as if intoxicated, and now and then fall down a stair. Thanks however to your intoxication you still do not break your limbs: your muscles are too languid and your head too confused to find the stones of the staircase as hard as we others do! For, us life is a greater danger: we are made of glass - alas, if we should strike against anything! And all is lost if we should fall!

Friedrich Nietzsche - The Gay Science
Book III - Aphorism # 154
