The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.
One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.
Tourists don’t know where they have been ……
…… travellers don’t know where they are going.
All journeys have secret destinations which the traveller is unaware.
…. but for the study itself, give me a small snug place, almost entirely walled with books. There should be only one window in it, looking upon trees.
Leigh Hunt, “My Books”.
A book is like a sandy path which keeps the indent of footsteps.
