"The stations of my youth had grand departure boards, with gilded destinations cascading down them in an avalanche of letters. But none of the trains arrived. Perhaps there is now something to be said for travelling hopefully, for riding on a train with no announced destination. Perhaps it is time to pay more attention to the journey than to the terminus."

- Feliks Zhukovsky, the fictitious narrator of "The Breaking of Eggs" by Jim Powell (a must-read book for anyone interested in freedom, politics, or indeed anything to do with life on earth).
