One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time – Andre Gide
What do I find nurturing about this quote? It’s the reality of it, and the word “consent” … Setting sail to discover new lands is a choice. You don’t have to set out, but if you want to discover new land, you’re signing up to lose sight of that shore for a bit.
Familiar shore line gone? Don’t panic, it’s part of getting to where you’re going and zillions of people are experiencing the same thing. Sure it’s great to have the certainty of a shore line. But if you’re compelled to explore, you let go of that bit of certainty for a while.
