Bruce Lee
Out there are places we can't even imagine.
Uncharted wilderness acquired by untrodden paths,
Undisturbed routes beyond unenvisioned borders,
Untravelled miles to unbelievable vistas.

But, within, there are those who dare to conceit.
Who will craft a craft to haul human knowing to extension
With blind will, pregnant with bristling desire,
To chart, tread, disturb, envision, travel and believe.
