I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.
I travel for travels sake.
The great affair is to move.

~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~

Surely it is the right wish that draws us to the right place.
Nothing of importance happens accidentally in our life.

~ Lama Anagarika Govinda – The Way of the White Clouds ~

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

~ Mark Twain ~

Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.

~ Helen Keller ~
