Of a man who has spent years on a ship blown about in circles,
you do not say he has had a long voyage,
only that he has been tossed about
for a very long time.
Where are you going?
Everyone is going somewhere.
What goes up must come down,
what is born must arrive
at some point.
And you must reach it before death.
But it must all be
within a day's journey -
even a moment's.
Longer, and it is essentially impossible
for some people
for those who die tonight.
Your goal in life must be one you can achieve
even if you die tonight.
Yet it must be worth spending every day pursuing.
