'...one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing...'




“All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.”

I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. Nelson Mandela

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.” 
― Nelson Mandela

“I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.” ― Herman Melville (Moby Dick)
