At present I am on the precipice; without your hand I fall forever.
Do you not look on the past with a shudder at the precipice on which you stood?
I—I feel like a dizzy creature standing at the edge of a precipice.

At the edge of the precipice was a seat, and there she sat down.
The road below attracted her like the depths of a precipice.
All were blind, stone blind; all made straight for the precipice edge.
And there is room, oh so much room, along the edge of the precipice.
They had tried not to go over the precipice, but perhaps the fall was inevitable.
