Musings on travel
“The world is a book, and those who don’t travel read only a page.” ~Augustine of Hippo
Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn’t matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow
A thousand times
Come, yet again, come, come.
— Jalal ad-Din Mohammed Balkhi (Rumi)
Musings on life
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~Mark Twain
Musings on studying
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” ~Rumi
“Not all those who wander are lost.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien
