The Road Ahead

The Road Ahead
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await her voice. And to make an end is to make a new beginning. T.S. Elliot (1888-1965) An optimist stays till midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. Bill Vaughan Tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it. African Proverb
By the street of by-and-by, one arrives at the house of never. Miguel de Cervantes (1524-1616) I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are more hills to climb. I have taken a moment to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibility, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended. Nelson Mandela (1918 -2013) I have learnt that everyone wants to live on tops of mountains but all the happiness and growth occur while you’re climbing. Andy Rooney, journalist
