Emerson says:


“The efforts which we make
to escape from our destiny
only serve to lead us into it.”


Elizabeth Gilbert says:


“I thought about one
of my favorite Sufi poems,
which says that God long ago
drew a circle in the sand
exactly around the spot
where you are standing
right now.
I was never not coming here.
This was never not going to happen.”

Jack Kerouac says:

“No man should go through life without once experiencing healthy, even bored solitude in the wilderness,
…. finding himself depending solely on himself,
and thereby learning his true and hidden strength”
