C.P. Cavafy’s poem ‘Ithaca’, recited by Sir Sean Connery with music specially composed by Vangelis.
Keep Ithaca always in your mind. Arriving there is what you are destined for. But do not hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you are old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you have gained on the way, not expecting Ithaca to make you rich. Ithaca gave you the marvellous journey. Without her, you would not have set out. She has nothing left to give you now.
