| [In Bermuda]: Take any road you please...it
curves always, which is a continual promise, whereas straight roads reveal
everything at a glance and kill interest.
- "Some Rambling Notes of an Idle Excursion"
Your road is everything that a road ought to be . . . and yet you will
not stay in it half a mile, for the reason that little, seductive, mysterious
roads are always branching out from it on either hand, and as these curve
sharply also and hide what is beyond, you cannot resist the temptation
to desert your own chosen road and explore them.
