The significance of man is not in what he attains, but rather in what he longs to attain.
There is a space between man’s imagination and man’s attainment that may only be traversed by his longing.
My house says to me, “Do not leave me, for here dwells your past.”
And the road says to me, “Come and follow me, for I am your future.”
And I say to both my house and the road, “I have no past, nor have I a future. If I stay here, there is a going in my staying; and if I go there is a staying in my going. Only love and death will change all things.”

– Khalil Gibran
