Joseph Conrad recalled, “It was in 1868, when nine years old or thereabouts, that while looking at a map of Africa of the time and putting my finger on the blank space then representing the unsolved mystery of that continent, I said to myself, with absolute assurance and an amazing audacity which are no longer in my character now, ‘When I grow up I shall go there.’”
Grown up, and that is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much easier to skip it and go from one childhood to another.- F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1945
