Quotes / It's the Journey That Counts

Go To

Come on, my friends, let's make for the hills.
They say there's gold but I'm looking for thrills.
You can get your hands on whatever we find,
'Cause I'm only coming along for the ride.
Well, you go your way and I'll go mine,
I don't care if we get there on time.
Everybody's searching for something, they say.
I'll get my kicks on the way.
Pink Floyd, "The Gold, It's In The..."

It's not always win or lose, it's the road you choose!

Forget the task
Enjoy the ride
And follow us into the night.
Nightwish, "Nightquest"

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna want to make it move
It's always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb
The Climb, Miley Cyrus

Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
Arriving there is what you are destined for.
But do not hurry the journey at all.
Better if it lasts for years,
so you are old by the time you reach the island,
wealthy with all you have gained on the way,
not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.
— "Ithaka", by C.P Cavafy

"And so, does the destination matter? Or is it the path we take? I declare that no accomplishment has substance nearly as great as the road used to achieve it. We are not creatures of destinations. It is the journey that shapes us. Our callused feet, our backs strong from carrying the weight of our travels, our eyes open with the fresh delight of experiences lived.”
