Wisdom To Live By

The long fateful journey home begins with a trip away from it.

One of many in life’s plethora of paradoxes.

No different from he who loses his life, gains it. The more one runs away from self, the closer one gets to true self. To keep the things one loves, one must first lose them.

Thus, in trying to direct a course towards home, one must point outward first.

The truth and wisdom of this saying is best evidenced in one’s earnest drive to make something of one’s life.

And that's the one true journey home.

  3. Most times, the simplest truths are the hardest to put to words, much less to explain.

    They simply are.
