“The first thing you notice, coming to Israel from the Arab world, is that you have left the most courteous region of the globe and entered the rudest. The difference is so profound that you're left wondering when the mutation in Semitic blood occurred, as though God parted the Red Sea and said: "Okay, you rude ones, keep wandering toward the Promised Land. The rest of you can stay here and rot in the desert, saying 'welcome, most welcome' and drowning each other in tea until the end of time.”
Tony Horwitz, Baghdad without a Map and Other Misadventures in Arabia

“There are people one knows and people one doesn't. One shouldn't cheapen the former by feigning intimacy with the latter.”
Tony Horwitz, Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War

“I am an agnostic on most matters of faith, but on the subject of maps I have always been a true believer. It is on the map, therefore it is, and I am.”
Tony Horwitz, One for the Road: An Outback Adventure
