Pero no podemos sentirnos mal a cada segundo. Deseaba decírselo. Reír no empeora las malas circunstancias del mismo modo que llorar tampoco las mejora. No significa que te hayas olvidado de ellas, o que no te importen. Significa simplemente que somos humanos. Aunque tampoco sabía cómo decirle eso.

There was romance in the unknown, but once a place had been discovered and cataloged and mapped, it was diminished, just another dusty fact in a book, sapped of mystery. So maybe it was better to leave a few spots on the map blank. To let the world keep a little of its magic, rather than forcing it to divulge every last secret.
Maybe it was better, now and then, to wonder.
