Charlotte Eriksson
“I thought that if I owned nothing, had nothing, was nothing, I would have nothing left to lose, and I wouldn't be scared anymore. Because my whole life I’ve been so damn scared. Scared to live because I was scared to die. But at the same I was so scared of living, so I wanted to die. Or maybe so scared of dying that I refused to live. You don't have to be afraid to fall, when you're already on the ground. You don't have to be scared to lose someone, when there's no one around to lose.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps

مصطفى محمود, يوميات نص الليل

Helen Oyeyemi
“I’m never sad when a friend goes far away, because whichever city or country that friend goes to, they turn the place friendly. They turn a suspicious-looking name on the map into a place where a welcome can be found. Maybe the friend will talk about you sometimes, to other friends that live around him, and then that’s almost as good as being there yourself. You’re in several places at once! In fact, my daughter, I would even go so far as to say that the further away your friends, and the more spread out they are the better your chances of going safely through the world…”
Helen Oyeyemi, Mr. Fox

E.A. Bucchianeri

E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

“I probably did too much thinking in India. I blame it on the roads, for they were superb...”

Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day

Tim Hawkins
“Every town you go to, they tell you what's special about their town. What they're number one at... This guy comes up and says, 'D'you know that we're the home of the world's largest frying pan?'
'...Really! That is great 'cause I'm writin' a new book called Things I Don't Care About.”
Tim Hawkins

P.G. Wodehouse

Half a league
Half a league onward
With a hey-nonny-nonny
And a hot cha-cha.”

Aldous Huxley
“With me, travelling is frankly a vice. The temptation to indulge in it is one which I find almost as hard to resist as the temptation to read promiscuously, omnivorously and without purpose. From time to time, it is true, I make a desperate resolution to mend my ways. I sketch out programmes of useful, serious reading; I try to turn my rambling voyages into systematic tours through the history of art and civilization. But without much success. After a little I relapse into my old bad ways. Deplorable weakness! I try to comfort myself with the hope that even my vices may be of some profit to me.”
Aldous Huxley

Kathy Griffin
“Life is adventure. Travel is adventure at a different address.”
Kathy Griffin
