"A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for." -- William Shedd
"Is it lack of imagination that makes us come
to imagined places, not just stay at home?
Or could Pascal have been not entirely right
about sitting quietly in one's room?
Continent, city, country, society:
the choice is never wide and never free.
And here, or there...No. Should we have stayed at home,
whever that may be?"
-- Elizabeth Bishop, "Questions of Travel"
