...he reached a door before which stood a doorkeeper.
He asked for admittance, but the doorkeeper said he
couldn't grant admittance at the moment. Being a
man who sought to make a difference, he asked
if it would be possible to pass through later and the
doorkeeper answered, "Perhaps." Since the door was
open and the keeper had moved to the side, he
peered into the interior. "If you are so
insistent, you can enter despite my veto..." the
doorkeeper said. "But beware: I am powerful,
and each successive doorkeeper inside is more
powerful than the last. The third doorkeeper is
already so powerful that even I cannot bear to look
at him". This gave him pause, and so he sat down on
a stool the doorkeeper had provided him, to await a better moment.
Years went by and he at last came to die.
"Everyone strives to reach the Law..."
he said with his final breaths. "So how is it that
no one but myself has ever begged for admittance?"
The doorkeeper replied, as his eyes grew glassy,
"No one else could ever be admitted here, since
this gate was made for you. I am now going to shut it."
Franz Kafka
Well, it happens to everybody, really, doesn't it ?? ;) However, it's also true that...

"Diving is good, as long as you get out of the water
