Cesare Pavese
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends.

Cesare Pavese

Robert Penn Warren
“For West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you go when the land gives out and the old-field pines encroach. It is where you go when you get the letter saying: Flee, all is discovered. It is where you go when you look down at the blade in your hand and the blood on it. It is where you go when you are told that you are a bubble on the tide of empire. It is where you go when you hear that thar's gold in them-thar hills. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go.”
Robert Penn Warren

I saw this look and heard this yearning everywhere in every states I visited. Nearly every American hungers to move.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

“We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined.

Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag.”
Jeremy Glass

Bill Bryson, In a Sunburned Country
