The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.

St. Augustine

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

 Henry Miller

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.

R.L. Stevenson

Tourists don’t know where they have been ……

…… travellers don’t know where they are going.

Paul Theroux

All journeys have secret destinations which the traveller is unaware.

Martin Buber

…. 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.

Graham Greene

  1. Just a lil’ note to say that this page is meant to be non-exhaustive. This means that I hope to be adding on to its contents on a regular basis for as long and as far as I can. So, if it is of any interest to anyone reading this blog, do keep a lookout for this page. 😉


    1. Actually, this page has been my particular ‘pride & joy’ in the setting up of the blog. Really happy to have someone else liking it as much as I do. Well, probably not as much, but will do. 😉
