If you don't know where you're going, any road - Lewis Carroll
The famous citation "If you don't know where you're going, any road'll take you there" is really a paraphrase of a conversation between Alice and the Cheshire Cat in Chapter 6 of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland:
"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don’t much care where--" said Alice.
"Then it doesn’t matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"--so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you’re sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
