Tiziano Terzani was an Italian journalist and writer, best known for his extensive knowledge of 20th century East Asia and for being one of the very few western reporters to witness both the fall of Saigon to the hands of the Vietcong and the fall of Phnom Pehn at the hands of the Khmer rouge in the mid-1970s.

“Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon the most insipid, most insignificant place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity.”
Tiziano Terzani, A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East

“Only if we manage to see the universe as a single entity, in which every part reflects the whole and whose great beauty lies precisely in its variety, will we be able to understand exactly who and where we are.

Letters agains the war: Letter from Orsigna, 2001.”
Tiziano Terzani

“Una strada c'è nella vita, e la cosa buffa è che te ne accorgi solo quando è finita. Ti volti indietro e dici «Oh, ma guarda, c'è un filo!». Quando vivi, non lo vedi, il filo, eppure c'è. Perché tutte le decisioni che prendi, tutte le scelte che fai sono determinate, tu credi, dal tuo libero arbitrio, ma anche questa è una balla. Sono determinate da qualcosa dentro di te che innanzitutto è il tuo istinto.”
Tiziano Terzani, La fine è il mio inizio
