To believe in limits is not to ignore possibility but to embrace it . To Ignore limits is to deny what is . All of life has limits . Spring comes , but it’s days are numbered . As are the days of winter . The suns arc does not go interminably across the sky . Daylight always gives way to darkness . There are only so many days on the calendar . A human life has limits . None of us , including Christ himself , escapes physical death . All art has limits . The painter paints with in the confines of the canvas . The cellist chooses notes , a progression , eliminating all other notes and progressions . Thus limits give music melody and life meaning . All music and life tend toward silence . Silence is a limit . One chooses to write a book and limits are set . Choose a film and limits are set . Characters run into obstacles , essentially limits , those limits propel them into action . Limits give life context and meaning . They are the boundaries we constantly strive to push back and over come . The humans skull symbolizes the finiteness of physical form . It reminds us to embrace the ultimate limit , physical death , and ultimately moves us to embrace life .
