IcyWolf,
Alas, you wax poetic. But as I reminisce over the many readings of Shakespearian plays and the like, I come to the stark realization I had know idea what my English Literature teacher was referring too.

So, in 5th grade English, and without the run-on list of metaphors, what you are saying is.
1. We learn more from the journey than the destination.
2. Current day Holy Grails can turn into an ordinary cup over time. After all, its main purpose is for having something to drink out of.
3. What we seek is not what we find. For what we seek is finite and tangible (such as a Holy Grail, or an accurate valuation formula) and what we find is actually abstract in nature.
4. Apparently you have arrived at a place in your journey where you are able to enjoy some of the more important things in life, which was the purpose of starting the journey in the first place. For it is what the journey provides for you (and your Swedish wolfett) and not the journey itself that was the goal.

Mike
(Loved the narrative, just seeing if I got your point)
