“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where—” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat. —so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation. “Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Life isn’t about finding yourself; it’s about creating yourself. So live the life you imagined.

— Henry David Thoreau
