'Growing old is unavoidable, but never growing up is possible. I believe you can retain certain things from your childhood if you protect them - certain traits, certain places where you don’t let the world go.'
'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,'
'I don't much care where -'
'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,'
'- so long as I get SOMEWHERE,'
'Oh, you're sure to do that, if you only walk long enough.'
'Love the world.
The world you lived in may not have been your ally.
But it wasn't your enemy either.'
