"Goodbyes are sad things. You leave behind dreams that you’ve worked to make real, friends that you’ve suffered to love and sometimes a quiet security that was built with half a lifetime. On the road, you move along and leave your efforts behind you in the dust, knowing deep inside that you will never find them exactly the same again.
Often you spend too much time looking back and miss something up ahead. But there’s little use in trying to avoid the loneliness and anxiety that go with you when you move on… for that is life, and it is a certainty.
The road teaches you to accept goodbyes as a part of saying hello to things that are newer and often better. It also teaches you also that what was loved and what was learned in the past can never be forgotten.
On the road, and in life everywhere, you spend much time learning, wondering and, sometimes, remembering." (from Dreams from the Road)
