“Outside the window, there slides past that unimaginable and deserted vastness where night is coming on, the sun declining in ghastly blood-streaked splendour like a public execution across, it would seem, half a continent, where live only bears and shooting stars and the wolves who lap congealing ice from water that holds within it the entire sky. All white with snow as if under dustsheets, as if laid away eternally as soon as brought back from the shop, never to be used or touched. Horrors! And, as on a cyclorama, this unnatural spectacle rolls past at twenty-odd miles an hour in a tidy frame of lace curtains only a little the worse for soot and drapes of a heavy velvet of dark, dusty blue.”
Angela Carter, Nights at the Circus

Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy

Was könnte aufregender sein, als ein unterbrochenes Leben mit all seinen Versprechen wieder aufzunehmen?”
Pascal Mercier

Bruce Feiler
“In the end I believe the essential spirit that animates those places animates me. If that spirit is God, then I found God...If that spirit is life, then I found life...If that spirit is awe, then I found awe.

All I had to do was remember, for what I was looking for I somehow already knew.”
Bruce Feiler

Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany's: And Three Stories

“Siento bajo las piernas el costillar de Rocinante.”
― Ernesto "Che" Guevara
