    Well I have fallen several times.
    Sometimes I got pushed. Sometime I was too drunk. Sometimes its dark and I cant see. Sometimes when I go pee I hit a tree.

    Chuck Norris doesn't fall. He stays still and the Earth comes to him.

    I think the OP is referring to the repeated line in Batman Begins, where the question is asked, "Why do we fall?" The answer in the movie is "so that we can learn to pick ourselves up." Very deep.

    "Because that's what people do. They leap, and hope to God they can fly, because otherwise you just drop like a rock, wondering the whole way down, why in the *hell* did I jump? But here I am, Sarah, falling, and the only one that makes me feel like I can fly... is you"

    If your your center of gravity comes to much out of your base of support, you fall.

    We fall to learn we are indeed fallible; we are finite beings that have embarked upon an endless search. I do, therefore I am. Be the ball. Hell, I just fall because I'm drunk.
