“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
It was not Nietzsche (whom I readily quote in High Up in the Rolling Hills) who wrote this, but Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
I like to think that it is a tenet that has subconsciously driven me throughout my life and made me make the decisions and detours that I have. In looking beyond short-term brutish goals, horizons and vistas open up that draw us out into beautiful realms of exploration and discovery. Following dreams leads us to places we cannot uncover by pursuing goals alone.
