International Literacy Day – Walking Stick Papers

It is best to go a journey on a road that you do not know; on a road
that lures you on to peep over the crest of yonder hill, that ever
flees before you in a game of hide-and-seek, disappearing behind great,
jutting rocks and turns and trees, to leap out again at your approach
and laughingly, elusively, continually slip before you; a road that
winds anon where some roaring brook pours near by; a road that may
deceive you and trick you into miles out of your way. (pg. 16)

From "Walking-Stick Papers" by Robert Cortes Holliday, 1918, Project Gutenburg
