“If asked which words one associated with the Sahara, only the most dedicated surrealist might be expected to offer "whale".”
Eamonn Gearon, The Sahara: A Cultural History

“Every Englishman abroad, until it is proved to the contrary, likes to consider himself a traveller and not a tourist.”
Evelyn Waugh, Labels

“If asked which words one associated with the Sahara, only the most dedicated surrealist might be expected to offer "whale".”
Eamonn Gearon, The Sahara: A Cultural History

“There's a point, you know, where treachery is so complete and unashamed that it becomes statesmanship.”
George MacDonald Fraser, Flashman and the Mountain of Light

“To lose a passport was the least of one’s worries. To lose a notebook was a catastrophe”
Bruce Chatwin

“One's life is more formed, I sometimes think, by books than by human beings: it is out of books one learns about love and pain at second hand. Even if we have the happy chance to fall in love, it is because we have been conditioned by what we have read, and if I had never known love at all, perhaps it was because my father's library had not contained the right books.”
Graham Greene, Travels With My Aunt
