other people's words

seen on a travel agency sign:
"A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving" -Lao Tzu
that sounds like a pretty solid argument against having a travel agent. haha, they lose.
Old Lao (Taoist extraordinaire) was also the dude that that came up with that heavily abused quote:
"the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
I guess it's true, but inspirational posters, forwards and 7 Habits lovers everywhere have pretty much made it vile. In that way, Lao Tzu is sort of like a Chinese Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson has some decent ideas, but he is also the schmuck behind this cheeseball:
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us"
buuut he also said this gem:
"Children are all foreigners"
I've been feeling that a lot lately.
