“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.” ~ George Harrison
Often mis-attributed to Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland books, this quote is actually from a George Harrison song, “Any Road”, albeit inspired by a scene in which Alice asks the Cheshire Cat for directions:
“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,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where—” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“—so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
How I interpret this quote often depends on what mood I’m in at the time. Sometimes, when I have a clear objective in mind, or a vision of where I want to be (or what I want to achieve), then it’s important to take the right path, the right steps, to take me there. Other times, I am happy simply to live life and see where it takes me, in which case I can simply take the path that seems most appealing at the time and find out the destination when I arrive!
This is the beautiful Kirkstone Pass in Cumbria, a wonderfully scenic drive in the Lake District.
