only he who sees that he is imprisoned has a chance of freedom

“I knew some sorry prisoners,” Mr. Gurdjieff continued, “who brought up three generations of spiders, which they succeeded in taming and even in teaching tricks. Another became friends with mice and rats, and still another shared his bread with sparrows. Each of these prisoners looked for a way of adapting to his condition and of finding a means to escape, not from the prison, but from himself. But only he one who sees that he is imprisoned in himself has a chance of freedom; that is, if he really desires it and is intelligently prepared. One needs to think very carefully and see who is in prison and what the prison consists of.”
Gurdjieff a Master in Life p.41
