"I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesterdays are buried deep...Leave it any way except a slow way. Leave it the fastest way you can. Never turn back. And never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour, because its dead. Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance. The clouds clear as you enter it." -- Beryl Markham
