I sometimes forget, and I think many others forget that it is not where or how you start, nor is it where or how you end, but it’s the journey itself that matters. Here are some good quotes that I found about the journey.
“Not all those who wander are lost.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien,
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin,
“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.”
― Walt Whitman,
“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”
“We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.”
― Henry Ward Beecher
“Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning of a journey.
At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.”
― Vera Nazarian,
