' As you journey through life,
choose the destinations well,
but do not hurry there. You will
arrive soon enough.

Wander the back roads and forgotten
paths, Keeping your destination like
the fixed point of a compass.

Seek out new voices strange sights,
and ideas foreign to your own. Such
things are for the soul.

And if, upon arrival you find that
destination is not exactly as you
had dreamed, do not be disappointed.

Think of all you would have missed.
but for the journey there, and know
that the true worth of your travels
lies not in where you come to be at
journey's end, but in who you've come
to be along the way. ' – C N
