Nafiseh liked a quote
The Crossing by Cormac McCarthy
“The names of the cerros and the sierras and the deserts exist only on maps. We name them that we do not lose our way. Yet it was because the way was lost to us already that we have made those names. The world cannot be lost. We are the ones. And it is because these names and these coordinates are our own naming that they cannot save us. They cannot find for us the way again.”
Cormac McCarthy

Gilles Deleuze
“Writing has nothing to do with meaning. It has to do with landsurveying and cartography, including the mapping of countries yet to come.”
Gilles Deleuze

Michael Ondaatje
“I believe in such cartography – to be marked by nature, not just label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. ... All I desired was to walk upon such an earth that had no maps.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

John C. Maxwell
“Do not take the agenda that someone else has mapped out for your life.”
John C. Maxwell

José Saramago
“The virtue of maps, they show what can be done with limited space, they foresee that everything can happen therein.”
José Saramago, The Stone Raft

Michael Ondaatje
“All I ever wanted was a world without maps.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient
