Take the path least travelled

It takes courage and confidence. It has some risks but it often brings great rewards: the challenge of the new, the thrill of exploration, growth from learning and self-confidence from success. 
I found this quote from a little motivational book called "Be Happy" that a friend gave me many years ago. The collection of wisdom and encouragement inside is simple, still very inspiring, especially for those who are drained from a monotonous and rather gloomy daily life and might have lost the direction.

Why did I go to Hong Kong? Wouldn't it be more comfortable to stay in Germany? I think the quote above serves as a good reminder and reassurance for the decisions I made back then.
We know what happens to people who stay in the middle of the road. They get run over.
