Samuel Butler
“Exploring is delightful to look forward to and back upon, but it is not comfortable at the time, unless it be of such an easy nature as not to deserve the name.”
Samuel Butler, Erewhon

“We all look back at some time or other and wonder why we didn't listen to our instincts. Why did we hestiate? Why did we lose our dreams?”
Diane Griffith, Chasing Dreams in Lefkas
