My house says to me, "Do not leave me, for here dwells your past."
And the road says to me, "Come and follow me, for I am your future."
And I say to both my house and the road, "I have no past, not have I a future. If I stay here, there is a going in my staying; and if I go there is a staying in my going. Only love and death change all things."
-from Sand and Foam byKhalil Gibran,
