an escape of possibility

We need sometimes to escape into open solitudes, into aimlessness, into the moral holiday of running some pure hazard, in order to sharpen the edge of life, to taste hardship, and and to be compelled to work desperately for a moment no matter what.

- George Santayana, "The Philosophy of Travel"
