Beau's Notes:

Dad had always found his own personal meaning in Shakespeare's line "No traveller returns." To him it suggested, not only the one-way journey into death that every human will experience, but the fact that no one returns to the places, people and situations, they once knew without all undergoing significant change.

HAMLET (Act III Scene 1)
For who would bear the whips and scornes of time,
The oppressors wrong, the proud mans contumely
The pangs of despised love, and the Lawes delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurnes
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When as himself he might his Quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered country, from whose bourn
NO TRAVELLER RETURNS, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
