Thursday Thoughts

“It is better to travel with hope in one’s heart than to arrive in safety.”    Tree and Sky

What an interesting quote.  It’s from a wonderful debut novel I’m reading called The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly (which I will blog more about later), and appears to be a derivation of the Robert Louis Stevenson quote, “Little do you know your own blessedness; for to travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive, and the true success is to labour.” 

Sort of like saying, ” The journey is the reward.”

Something we’ve all heard before, but still, something we should all think about.
