When you set out on your journey to Ithaca, pray that the road is long, full of adventure, full of knowledge. That the summer mornings are many. To arrive there is your ultimate goal, but do not hurry the voyage at all. It is better to let it last for many years, and to anchor at the island when you are old, rich with all you have gained on the way, not expecting that Ithaca will offer your riches. Ithaca has give you the beautiful voyage. Without her you would have never set out on the road.
