Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
— Mattew 7:13–14

We want certainties, security. The broader road feels more secure. The narrow way is fraught and precarious.
