To gain a new territory is an adventure not a retreat.
It applies to many aspects of life, for instance. “For hate they sow, war they reap.” But it works the opposite direction too: “For joy you sow, delight you shall reap.”
“People who don’t have time are but lazy.” Aphorism by GC Lichtenberg a writer/physicist who introduced aphorisms into German literature and experimental physics into science.
I’d like to add the inversion in more contemporary words:
Those who can afford the time have but the best time management.
