"It is far. But there is no journey upon this earth that a man may not make if he sets his heart to it. There is nothing, Umbopa, that he cannot do, there are no mountains he may not climb, there are no deserts he cannot cross; save a mountain and a a desert of which you are spared the knowledge, if love leads him and he holds his life in his hand counting it as nothing, ready to keep it or to lose it as Providence may order."

H. Rider Haggard

I like that Michael. I think it's time I read more Haggard, and for sure need to revisit King Soloman's Mines too. Thanks for the nudge.
