You might be poor, your shoes might be broken,
but your mind is a palace.

The shoe that fits one person pinches another;
there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.
– Carl Jung


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began,
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
– J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings

Be sure you put your feet in the right place,
then stand firm.

It doesn’t matter how great your shoes are if you
don’t accomplish anything in them.

 The man with the boots does not mind where he places his foot. 
– Irish Proverb

To the barefoot man, happiness is a pair of shoes.
To the man with old shoes, it’s a pair of new shoes.
To the man with new shoes, it’s stylish shoes.
And of course, the fellow with no feet would be happy to be barefoot.
Measure your life by what you have not by what you don’t.
– Michael Josephson


Few people know how to take a walk.
The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes,
old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity,
good speech, good silence and nothing too much.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
