Kahlil Gibran

My house says to me, “Do not leave me for here dwells your past.”

And the road says to me, “Come and follow me, for I am your future.”

And I say to both my house and the road,

“I have no past, nor have I a future.

If I stay here, there is a going in my staying;

and if I go, there is a staying in my going.

Only love and death can change all things.
