"There is nothing
-- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats
. In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your destination
or whether you reach somewhere
else, or whether you never get anywhere
at all, you're always busy
, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not."
Spoken by Ratty to Mole in Wind in the Willows a children's book by Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932).
