On fleeing

I know well what I am fleeing from

but not what I am in search of.”

Michel de Montaigne

Fleeing is an act of cowardice. Is an act of rebellion. Is an act of contradiction. What does it mean to flee? From what is it possible to flee from? Could fleeing be a political act? Is it a counterproductive act? Who has fled and for which reasons?
