On the Road Again

My stay in Sydney ends tonight. I will be on the road and off the web. This is my final post from Sydney.

I leave you with a few quotes from Henry David Thoreau:

All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one… characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers.

. . .

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

. . .

As if we could kill time without injuring eternity!

. . .

As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.

. . .

Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.

. . .

Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Goodnight, goodbye and may your god go with you.
