— this is really happening

Mary Wollstonecraft said in 1797

“Vigorous minds are with difficulty restrained within the trammels of authority; a spirit of enterprise, a passion for experiment, a liberal curiosity, urges them to quit the beaten paths, to explore untried ways, to burst the fetters of prescription, and to acquire wisdom by an individual experience.”

Thanks to A.K. for introducing me to this quote.
