Circle

The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.

— Empedocles

Every man is the center of a circle, whose fatal circumference he can not pass.

— John James Ingalls

If a man could understand all the horror of the lives of ordinary people who are turning round in a circle of insignificant interests and insignificant aims, if he could understand what they are losing, he would understand that there can only be one thing that is serious for him — to escape from the general law, to be free. What can be serious for a man in prison who is condemned to death? Only one thing: How to save himself, how to escape: nothing else is serious.

— G.I. Gurdjieff
