“We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

“A feeling is no longer the same when it comes the second time. It dies through the awareness of its return. We become tired and weary of our feelings when they come too often and last too long.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

“Life is not what we live; it is what we imagine we are living.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon
