Life is a Journey, not a Destination

So believed Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist and poet active in the mid 19th century.

Living life on the road gives you plenty of time to contemplate this idea, moving from one venue to another, constantly in transit and always racing against the clock.

My conclusion would be that destinations are temporary, elusive things like the mirages of an oasis in the desert. Journeys are more real in the sense that we are always moving whether it be physically or simply through time.

None of us beat the clock and time will not stand still, so better to live the moment if you can.
