“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” – Lao Tzu

“When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.” – Chinese proverb
The genius of Dutch engineering, and how they harnessed the atmosphere to strengthen their society, should be one of the wonders of the scientific world. I suppose, in the current condition of America, the proverb above has become a political statement, too.

"And now, dear Lord, I cannot wait, Because I have a luncheon date." – John Betjeman
