Preparing to Enjoy instead of just Enduring the Journey

A child is helpless in choosing what is to be engraved on his/her mind during the formative years. The awesome responsibility is assumed, for better or worse, by us adults. Today we are shapers of the world of tomorrow. That is the plain truth. ~Walt Disney

What is the destination?
Alice in Wonderland:

Alice: Would you tell me please which way I ought to go from here?
Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.

Alice: I don't much care where.
Cat: Then it doesn't matter which way you go.
~Lewis Carroll
