Therefore, go on companion, when you find

No higway more, no track, all being blind,

The way to go shall glimmer in the mind.

For Man has conquered earth and charted sea,

And planned the courses of all stars that be

Adventure on, more wonders are in thee.

Adventure on, for from the littlest clue

Has come, whatever worth Man ever knew.

The next to lighten mankind may be you.

(From:The Wanderer, by Masefield, cited in: No Highway more by Nevil Shute.)
