    A man may be born, but in order to be born he must first die, and in order to die he must first awake.
    (George Gurdjieff (c. 1877-1949), Greek-Armenian religious teacher, mystic. Quoted in P.D. Ouspensky, In Search of the Miraculous, ch. 11 (1949). Gurdjieff continued: "If a man dies without having been awakened he cannot be born. If a man is born without having died he may become an 'immortal thing.' Thus the fact that he has not 'died' prevents a man from being 'born'; the fact of his not having awakened prevents him from 'dying'; and should he be born without having died he is prevented from 'being.'...")
