As you journey through life

Choose your destinations well.

But do not hurry there

You will arrive soon enough.


Wander the back roads and forgotten paths,

Keeping your destination in your heart.

Like the fixed point of a compass.


Seek out new voices, strange sights,

And ideas foreign to your own.

Such things are riches for the soul.


And if, upon arrival,

You find that your 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 come to be along the way.
