Quote of the Day

By Kristin

While rummaging around my parents old book collection, I stumbled upon a childhood favorite, The Phantom Tollbooth. For those of you who haven’t read it, I suggest you do. Here will be our quote of the day to give you a taste of its content.

…the most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what's in between, and they took great pleasure in doing just that. Then one day someone discovered that if you walked as fast as possible and looked at nothing but your shoes you would arrive at your destination much more quickly. Soon everyone was doing it. They all rushed down the avenues and hurried along the boulevards seeing nothing of the wonders and beauties of their city as they went.

The Phantom Tollbooth, Norton Juster
