    “No one's life should be rooted in fear. We are born for wonder, for joy, for hope, for love, to marvel at the mystery of existence, to be ravished by the beauty of the world, to seek truth and meaning, to acquire wisdom, and by our treatment of others to brighten the corner where we are.”
    ― Dean R. Koontz, Life Expectancy

    Down the road from me is a very old building, it's currently a restaurant. There's a plaque nailed to the weathered woodwork near the door. I've read it a zillon times.
    Every time it provokes the same thought in my head, for such an old building I wish something would have happened.
    Silly I know, but such is such.

    “If we are always arriving and departing, it is also
    true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination
    is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.”

    “If it be knowledge or wisdom one is seeking, then one had better go direct to the source. And the source is not the scholar or philosopher, not the master, saint, or teacher, but life itself - direct experience of life. The same is true for art. Here, too, we an dispense with "the masters.”
    ― Henry Miller, Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch
