…we must be content to creep along the ground,
and never soar.
Many wait for the perfect time to set out,
they await the approval of friends to hit the road,
what they don’t know is;
no time is perfect and everyone is already taken,
so anyone desperate to fill their need,
sets out alone at dawn while they are still imperfect,
in the company of self belief
on their right and determination on their left.
“If we insist on being as sure as is conceivable, we must be content to creep along the ground, and never soar.”- John Henry Newman.
