Quotes About The Staircase

The Staircase Quotes: I'm certain, as we filled down the great staircase, that I appeared the same as ever, a moping twelve years-old, all arms and legs.

Saying about The Staircase: Aging is a staircase - the upward ascension of the human spirit, bringing us into wisdom, wholeness and authenticity.

Entropy means that everything in the world, everything, is in a state of decline and decay, the arch. There's only one exception to this universal law, and that is the human spirit, which can continue to evolve upwards.
