It is better to travel hopefully, than to arrive; Robert Louis Stevenson

I have been to the moon,
One step at a time;
The view from it though
Was not as sublime

As the journey itself;
That part was the fun,
Much better than sitting
All day in the sun.

So travel your life with
That hope in your heart,
Because when you arrive
It's the end, not the start.

  1. very Buddhist in sentiment ; reminds me of that line from ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’ : ‘sometimes it is better to travel than it is to arrive’

  2. The anticipation and imagination I’d usually better than the reality… but it’s still important to go anyway!!!!
