“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”
― Cristoforo Colombo
I saw it on the Internet - it must be true!
I love the quote. So simple but so powerful. I came across it on the front page here.
You can never move forward without leaving the past behind.
Yup! Still true today as it ever was!
Columbus teached me a life lesson so many years after dato :D
Or even more literally. Wrote a short story a long time ago about the first human deep space mission. They are all crowded around the windows as the tiny blue speck of Earth slowly disappears. At that point they are completely cut off from Home. Takes about 2 weeks for all the "astronauts" to go completely insane. At the end of the story it turns out that it was all a simulation. The sixth one with the same result. The whole reason the "Trillion Dollar Ship" never leaves Earth. :)
