“Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.”
Erol Ozan

Charlotte Eriksson
“Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy.
There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.”
Charlotte Eriksson, You're Doing Just Fine

Catherine Fisher
“All my years to this moment
All my roads to this wall.
All my words to this silence
All my pride to this fall.
-Songs of Sapphique”
Catherine Fisher, Incarceron

Angela N. Blount
“Sometimes the most scenic roads in life are the detours you didn't mean to take.”
Angela N. Blount, Once Upon an Ever After

Charlotte Eriksson
“I’m learning persistence and the closing of doors, the way the seasons come and go as I keep walking on these roads, back and forth, to find myself in new time zones, new arms with new phrases and new goals. And it hurts to become, hurts to find out about the poverty and gaps, the widow and the leavers. It hurts to accept that it hurts and it hurts to learn how easy it is for people to not need other people. Or how easy it is to need other people but that you can never build a home in someone’s arms because they will let go one day and you must build your own.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Another Vagabond Lost To Love: Berlin Stories on Leaving & Arriving

Dan Rather
“Americans will put up with anything provided it doesn't block traffic.”
Dan Rather

Larken Rose
“But who would build the roads if there were no government?

You mean to tell me that 300 million people in this country and 7 billion people on the planet would just sit around in their houses and think “Gee, I’d like to go visit Fred, but I can't because there isn’t a flat thing outside for me to drive on, and I don’t know how to build it and the other 300 million or 7 billion people can’t possibly do it because there aren’t any politicians and tax collectors. If they were here then we could do it. If they were here to boss us around and steal our money and really inefficiently build the flat places, then we would be set. Then I would be comfortable and confident that I could get places. But I can’t go to Fred’s house or the market because we can’t possibly build a flat space from A to B. We can make these really small devices that enable us to contact people from all over the word that fits in our pockets; we can make machines that we drive around in, but no, we can’t possibly build a flat space.”
Larken Rose

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Great artists make the roads; good teachers and good companions can point them out. But there ain't no free rides, baby. No hitchhiking. And if you want to strike out in any new direction — you go alone. With a machete in your hand and the fear of God in your heart.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Language of the Night: Essays on Fantasy and Science Fiction

“I probably did too much thinking in India. I blame it on the roads, for they were superb...”
Robert Edison Fulton Jr., One Man Caravan

Sam Shepard
“I had a definite sense of somehow being a passenger in an evil vehicle crusing through Paradise.”
Sam Shepard, Cruising Paradise

“They say life is a highway and we all travel our own roads, some good, some bad, yet each is a blessing of its own.”
Jess "Chief" Brynjulson

“...all the disadvantages of good roads: high speed, and almost total lack of that inspiring factor in travel -- the welcoming hand of the interested stranger.”
Robert Edison Fulton Jr., One Man Caravan

John Steinbeck
“And her eyes were on the highway, where life whizzed by.”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

“Byproduct of the circulation of commodities, human circulation considered as a form of consumption, tourism comes down fundamentally to the freedom to go and see what has become banal. The economic planning of the frequenting of different places is already in itself the guarantee of their equivalence. The same modernization that has withdrawn the element of time from journeying, has also withdrawn the reality of space.”
Tom McDonough, The Situationists and the City: A Reader

“The roads to the stars are open only to those who grasp the great thoughts!”

Силвия Томова
“...и най-внушителните съоражения в основата си израстват от пясък. Именно той е канавата, от която се появява един от най-внушителните символи на цивилизацията - пътят. Така както в един дворец не може да има само мрамор, така и пътят започва от прашинката. А не е ли така и с живота ни? Колко пясък трябва да изгребе търсачът на съкровища, за да достигне до една трошица злато?”
Силвия Томова, Тит от Никомедия

“But how many chose to ignore the direct attack they laid on what is fed to all of us as 'life,' with its well-defined roads to factory and pool-hall, to work and pleasure, both organized, both shells, both a continuation of existence by forced means, in the shadow of life?”
Tom McDonough, The Situationists and the City: A Reader

Robin Jarvis
“...moderate social deviance or class non-conformism I have imputed to the first generation of pedestrians. Improved roads, after all, were one of the principal means by which the country was building a national communications network that would underpin the huge commercial and industrial expansion of the nineteenth century; changing the landscape of the country to produce the arterial interconnection of the modern state in place of a geography of more or less self-enclosed local communities; consolidating the administrative structures of the state and facilitating political hegemony over a rapidly growing and potentially unstable population; and promulgating a 'national' culture in the face of regional diversity and independence. With the main roads such powerful instruments of change, the walker's decision to exploit his freedom to resist the imperative of destination and explore instead by lanes, by-roads and fieldpaths, could well be interpreted as an act of denial, flight or dissent vis-a-vis the forces that were ineradicably transforming British society.”
Robin Jarvis, Romantic Writing and Pedestrian Travel

Murray N. Rothbard
“Abolition of the public sector means, of course, that all pieces of land, all land areas, including streets and roads, would be owned privately, by individuals, corporations, cooperatives, or any other voluntary groupings of individuals and capital.”
Murray N. Rothbard, For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto

Murray N. Rothbard
“Wouldn’t some owners designate red for “stop,” others green or blue, etc.? Wouldn’t some roads be used on the right- hand side and others on the left? Such questions are absurd. Obviously, it would be to the interest of all road owners to have uniform rules in these matters, so that road traffic could mesh smoothly and without difficulty. Any maverick road owner who insisted on a left- hand drive or green for “stop” instead of “go” would soon find himself with numerous accidents, and the disappearance of customers and users.”
Murray N. Rothbard, For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto

“Straight roads are boring, winding roads are exciting, but you rest on the straight road and get tired on the other road! You need both roads in life!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

“Good transportation as well as good roads are necessary to promote sustainable tourism.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“If the human spirit dreads anything, it is to finally arrive at some long fought for destination, and after celebrating the arrival to suddenly discover that there are no other roads that go forward from that place for there are no other destinations to go to. And it is out of the life-sustaining passion of the human spirit to be ever-achieving that God crafted beginnings and endings so that such a horrific reality will never be reality.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Mehmet Murat ildan
“Is it possible to say this: The road was beautiful, but the journey was terrible! Yes, it's very possible, especially when traveling with people who don't have the same vision on life as you!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Mehmet Murat ildan
“The night is dark, the weather is windy, the road is foggy, the ground is snowy, the environment is spooky, and the bends are scary! Here is a great road for you, a road worth traveling! Fall down, get up, get stuck in the snow, and get out of the snow. If you want to go a long way in this chaotic universe, you need to be a student in a school like this road!”
Mehmet Murat ildan
