Heights are Precipices

Another quote from Seneca that I really liked:

Let us abandon those things that cannot be done or can only be done with difficulty, and let us pursue what lies close to us and mocks our hope, but let us realize that all of them are equally unimportant, different to look at externally but inside equally futile. And let us not envy those who stand on a higher station: what appeared as heights are precipices.

You are going to make me dig out my Latin books, aren't you.
