You who think that you are voyaging

From Austin Storm

Fare forward, you who think that you are voyaging;
You are not those who saw the harbour
Receding, or those who will disembark.
Here between the hither and the farther shore
While time is withdrawn, consider the future
And the past with an equal mind.

- T.S. Eliot, excerpt from The Dry Savages
