Lastly, I found this Cormac McCarthy quote while resurrecting an archive of my very first personal website. It seems fitting to present now:
The road has its own reasons and no two travelers will have the same understandings of those reasons. If indeed they come to an understanding of them at all. Listen to the corridos of the country. They will tell you... the shape of the road is the road. There is not some other road that wears that shape but only the one. And every voyage begun upon it will be completed whether horses are found or not.
