Quote:
"I am afraid you don't understand. When Columbus discovered America did he know toward what he was sailing? His goal was to go ahead, straight in front of him. Himself was his goal, impelling him to go ahead...I have often thought...that in art, and particularly in literature, the only people that count are those that launch out on to unknown seas. One doesn't discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time."
