On being average.

The greatest sin is not becoming evil, or bad, or curl, or harmful or dishonest, or a victim and a loser. But being one thing and one thing only; mediocre and average, this is the common worst.

In the following lines from Ibsen’s, “Peer Gynt” Peer is approached by the agent of death called the button moulder, he can only mould buttons (human beings) who did not turn themselves during their lives, into gold or silver buttons (special human beings), he can only melt those who remains average, so maybe, later on in their future life, one of them could be transformed to become silver or gold buttons. And Peer, unfortunately – is average, thus, like most, has to be melted.
