Echoes through time: the bridge on which you must cross the river of life

No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges and demigods who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of pawning and forgoing yourself. There is one path in the world that none can walk but you. Where does it lead? Don’t ask, walk!

Friedrich Nietzsche (1873), Schopenhauer as Educator

Hat-tip to the ever excellent Maria Popova at BrainPickings and this post on Nietzsche.
