Malcolm Lowry
“Bad, or good, as it happens to be, that is what it is to exist! . . . It is as though I have been silent and fuddled with sleep all my life. In spite of all, I know now that at least it is better to go always towards the summer, towards those burning seas of light; to sit at night in the forecastle lost in an unfamiliar dream, when the spirit becomes filled with stars, instead of wounds, and good and compassionate and tender. To sail into an unknown spring, or receive one's baptism on storm's promontory, where the solitary albatross heels over in the gale, and at last come to land. To know the earth under one's foot and go, in wild delight, ways where there is water.”
Malcolm Lowry, Ultramarine

Daniel Mendelsohn
“I did and do believe, after all that I've seen and done, that if you project yourself into the mass of things, if you look for things, if you search, you will, by the very act of searching, make something that would not otherwise have happened, you will find something, even something small, something that will certainly be more than if you hadn't gone looking in the first place, if you hadn't asked our grandfather anything at all...There are no miracles, no magical coincidences. There is only looking and finally seeing, what was always there.”
Daniel Mendelsohn, The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million

Hermann Hesse
“When someone is searching, said Siddhartha, then it might easily
happen that the only thing his eyes still see is that what he searches
for, that he is unable to find anything, to let anything enter his mind,
because he always thinks of nothing but the object of his search,
because he has a goal, because he is obsessed by the goal. Searching
means: having a goal. But finding means: being free, being open, having
no goal. You, oh venerable one, are perhaps indeed a searcher, because,
striving for your goal, there are many things you don't see, which are
directly in front of your eyes.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Judith Schalansky
“To search is more blessed than to find, Gissler thinks.”
Judith Schalansky, Atlas of Remote Islands

“***Sunn Meri Dastak***

khudse naaraz hai kyu,
aisi talaash hai kyu,
rooh teri udaas hai kyu bandeya...

naa mitegi yeh hasratein,
naa bharegi yeh khalaa,
naa milega yu sukoon bandeya...

sunn meri dastak,
khol dil ka dar,
kar mujhe qubool bandeya....

le haath mera thaam,
aur karle itmenaan,
ki yaad nahi mujhe
teri koi bhi bhool bandeya...”
Henna Sohail

Bangambiki Habyarimana, Pearls Of Eternity
