horizon

Memory was supposed to fill the time, but it made time a hole to be filled. Each second was two hundred yards, to be walked, crawled. You couldn’t see the next hour, it was so far in the distance. Tomorrow was over the horizon, and would take an entire day to reach.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

Between two worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn, upon the horizon’s verge.

George Gordon Byron

The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were and ask “why not?”.

John F. Kennedy
