"The path to being is inevitable.
The path to nothing is inaccessible.
The path to appearance is always accessible and traveled, but one can go around it.
A truly sapient man is therefore not one who blindly pursues a truth, but only one who is always cognizant of all three paths, that of being, that of nonbeing, and that of appearance.
Superior knowledge-and all knowledge is superiority-is given only to the man who has known the buoyant storm on the path of being, who has known the dread of the second path to the abyss of nothing, but who has taken upon himself the third way, the arduous path of appearance."
(An Introduction To Metaphysics, Martin Heidegger)

the description of the paths is very profound, and needs deep, well-thought analysis of one's own existence. "a truely sapient man" what an expression.

thanks Bita
