"'Why, why?' And that was, again, in my way of seeing, very American. I did something magnificent and mysterious and I got a practical 'Why?' And the beauty of it is I didn't have any why."
"To me it's so simple, that life should be lived on the edge of life. ... To refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge, and then you are going to live your life on the tightrope."
~ Phillipe Petit
