Fortune cookie wisdom

I found this little gem in my fortune cookie. It's inspiring any way you look at it--in life, in love, in writing. But it's pretty darn special to me since I'm in the process of writing a book about fortune telling. While my MC doesn't go around writing fortunes that go in actual fortune cookies this one is so fitting for the way I'm writing this particular story.

"You cannot discover new oceans unless you are willing to lose sight of the shore."

WOW, where do you get your fortune cookies? Haha, mine are always really lame, cheesy ones.

But this is a great quote.

Nice.

That is almost too deep for a fortune cookie. I never try to think about the meaning of a fortune for more than 1-2 seconds, but this one has me going all metaphysical!
