About this Quote

This quote by Francois de La Rochefoucauld speaks to the suggestion that some points in life are also powerful to be faced head-on. The sun and also fatality are two of the most effective forces in the universe, and also they are both as well frustrating to be taken a look at with a consistent eye. The sunlight is a symbol of life as well as energy, and death is a symbol of finality as well as the unknown. Both of these pressures are as well effective to be dealt with without anxiety or nervousness. The quote recommends that we should not be as well strong in our approach to life, which we must be mindful of the power of the sunlight and also death. We need to be simple as well as respectful of the power of these pressures, as well as not try to look them in the eye. Rather, we must take a more calculated strategy to life, and be mindful of the power of the sun and also fatality.
