No Highway…

… Therefore, go forth, companion: when you find

No highway more, no track, all being blind,

The way to go shall glimmer in the mind.

Though you have conquered Earth and charted Sea

And planned the courses of all Stars that be,

Adventure on, more wonders are in thee.

Adventure on, for from the littlest clue

Has come whatever worth man ever knew;

The next to enlighten all men may be you…

– John Masefield

Quoted from ‘No Highway’, a novel by Nevil Shute.
