“For him it was a dark passage which led to nowhere, then to nowhere, then again to nowhere, once again to nowhere, always and forever to nowhere, heavy on the elbows in the earth to nowhere, dark, never any end to nowhere, hung on all time always to unknowing nowhere, this time and again for always to nowhere, now not to be borne once again always and to nowhere, now beyond all bearing up, up, up and into nowhere, suddenly, scaldingly, holdingly all nowhere gone and time absolutely still and they were both there, time having stopped and he felt the earth move out and away from under them.”

Michel de Certeau
“To walk is to lack a place. It is the indefinite process of being absent and in search of a proper. The moving about that the city mutliplies and concentrates makes the city itself an immense social experience of lacking a place -- an experience that is, to be sure, broken up into countless tiny deportations (displacements and walks), compensated for by the relationships and intersections of these exoduses that intertwine and create an urban fabric, and placed under the sign of what ought to be, ultimately, the place but is only a name, the City...a universe of rented spaces haunted by a nowhere or by dreamed-of places.”
Michel de Certeau, The Practice of Everyday Life

Thomas Ligotti
“In the recumbence of depression, your information-gathering system collates its intelligence and reports to you these facts: (1) there is nothing to do; (2) there is nowhere to go; (3) there is nothing to be; (4) there is no one to know. Without meaning-charged emotions keeping your brain on the straight and narrow, you would lose your balance and fall into an abyss of lucidity. And for a conscious being, lucidity is a cocktail without ingredients, a crystal clear concoction that will leave you hung over with reality. In perfect knowledge there is only perfect nothingness, which is perfectly painful if what you want is meaning in your life.”
Thomas Ligotti

Eugene O'Neill
“Happy roads is bunk. Weary roads is right. Get you nowhere fast. That's where I've got—nowhere. Where everyone lands in the end, even if most of the suckers won't admit it.”
Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey into Night

“I was born walking, born in the nowhere between galaxies.”
Hannah Lillith Assadi, Sonora

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“We can walk to ‘nowhere’ and think that ‘nowhere’ is ‘somewhere.’ For such are the roads paved by men. Yet, the humility of a manger and the magnificence of a cross constructed a road to the ‘everywhere’ that forever abolished the ‘nowhere’ of men.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Sanhita Baruah
“I let every grain of sand slip through my fingers
As the wind carried them away;
Some drops of rain absorbed by the sand,
Some dissolved in the sea.

I'd go back carrying no traces
Of where I'd been,
But the sand settled between my fingers,
And the grains falling off from my toes.

I wouldn't soil the carpet on the floor
If only I'd known...”
Sanhita Baruah

“I am as nowhere as I can be
Could you add some somewhere to me?”
The Avett Brothers

Himanshu   Sharma
“You appear from nowhere,
you disappear into nowhere,
on the way you are madly running,
never enjoying what is now & here,
let whatever comes - come,
let whatever goes - go,
Don't Demand...Don't Regret...Don't Cling...Don't Control

Simply flow...let it go”
Himanshu Sharma (Shunyo)

caught in the traffic jam
not reaching?”

Olga Tokarczuk
“I have nowhere to return to. It's like a state of imprisonment. The walls of the cell are the horizon of what I can see. Beyond them exists a world that's alien to me and doesn't belong to me. So for people like me the only thing possible is here and now, for every future is doubtful, everything yet to come is barely sketched and uncerain, like a mirage that can be destroyed by the slightest twitch of the air. That's what was going through my mind as we sat there in silence. It was better than a conversation.”
Olga Tokarczuk, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

“Bitterness leads you nowhere but still.”
Christine E. Szymanski

Daniel Kolak, پرسیدن مهم‌تر از پاسخ دادن است

“کیهانی که در ناکجاست، هیچ وقت هم پدید نمی آید.”
