The Motorcycle Diaries by Ernesto Che Guevara

Clear rating
This strikes me as one of those texts that's clearly popular for historical import rather than style or substance. I felt like the actual journey could have been described in a less heavy-handed way by most of the travel blogs I read.

Haruki Murakami
“Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep on moving, trying to sleep through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth, you won't be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there- to the edge of the world. There's something you can't do unless you get there.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Voltaire
“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”
Voltaire

Ernest Hemingway
“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Ernest Hemingway

Zora Neale Hurston
“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Neil Gaiman
“One describes a tale best by telling the tale. You see? The way one describes a story, to oneself or to the world, is by telling the story. It is a balancing act and it is a dream. The more accurate the map, the more it resembles the territory. The most accurate map possible would be the territory, and thus would be perfectly accurate and perfectly useless.
The tale is the map that is the territory.
You must remember this.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods
