“In order to discover new lands, one must be willing to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.” – Andre Gide
I hadn’t heard of Andre Guide before until I came across the above quote. Perfect for a new, long, and difficult journey. Below you will find a little bit about him and some other quotes I found interesting upon researching him.
André Paul Guillaume Gide (22 November 1869 – 19 February 1951) was a French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in literature in 1947. Gide’s career ranged from its beginnings in the symbolist movement, to the advent of anticolonialism between the two World Wars.
