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

Roman Payne
“Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.”
Roman Payne, Cities & Countries

C.S. Lewis
“I am [in your world].’ said Aslan. ‘But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.”
C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia

Roman Payne
“A person does not grow from the ground like a vine or a tree, one is not part of a plot of land. Mankind has legs so it can wander.”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

John Masefield

I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.”
John Masefield, Sea Fever: Selected Poems

Roman Payne
“This was how it was with travel: one city gives you gifts, another robs you. One gives you the heart’s affections, the other destroys your soul. Cities and countries are as alive, as feeling, as fickle and uncertain as people. Their degrees of love and devotion are as varying as with any human relation. Just as one is good, another is bad.”
Roman Payne, Cities & Countries

Jules Verne
“Science, my lad, has been built upon many errors; but they are errors which it was good to fall into, for they led to the truth.”
Jules Verne, Journey to the Center of the Earth

Luisa A. Igloria
“Inevitably, though, there will always be a significant part of the past which can neither be burnt nor banished to the soothing limbo of forgetfulness— myself. I was and still am that same ship which carried me to the new shore, the same vessel containing all the memories and dreams of the child in the brick house with the toy tea set. I am the shore I left behind as well as the home I return to every evening. The voyage cannot proceed without me.”
Luisa A. Igloria

Ira Levin
“Les gens qui ont besoin de plus qu une valise ne sont pas de vrais voyageurs, ce sont des touristes.”
Ira Levin, Rosemary's Baby

“Il n’est pire exil que celui du coeur”
Olivier Weber, Le Barbaresque

Sylvain Tesson
“La mémoire garde trace de chaque étape d'un voyage au long cours. Comme si le mouvement avait le rôle d'un fixateur de souvenirs ou que le temps, lorsqu'il était mesuré par le défilement de l'espace, ne se dissolvait plus dans l'oubli. La route intensifie les événements de la vie.”
Sylvain Tesson, Éloge de l'énergie vagabonde

Carl Sagan
“Our individual growth represents the advancement of the species. The exploration of the cosmos is a voyage of self-discovery.”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos

Jean-Didier Urbain
“Le voyageur sait qu'il n'y a plus de bouts du monde. Ils sont tous atteints, balisés, photographiés et racontés. Il n'y a guère que la manière de les rejoindre qui peut restaurer la différence - en sacrifiant toutefois la "saveur d'exotisme" à la performance athlétique ou technique, ce qui convertit du même coup le voyage en exploit.”
Jean-Didier Urbain, L'idiot du voyage: Histoires de touristes (Petite bibliothèque payot)

“The Cryptic Sea by Stewart Stafford

Walk free through Jailer's Gate,
Sail to where corporeal forms fade,
No longer seen as a common cutpurse,
Now in a navigational cut-and-thrust.

Note how the ocean heaves and boils,
Swirling into towering vortex coils,
With hideous creatures at every base,
Bearing the haunting Kraken's face.

Great ghost ships groan from the mist,
And balls of light form fast betwixt,
The horizon and the sea spray foam,
Save us all and set sail for home.

Peter Handke
“And who was I? Not nearly as much of a loner and outsider as I’d always thought. A bit odd, but others were more odd. And who else was I? A member of an expedition, or no, someone who’d been on an expedition all by himself, and after forging his way through all sorts of difficulties had come back here to civilization to freshen up, for the time being, before his next one-man venture. And who else? At first sight a disturbed person, who, when you got to know him, seemed much more normal, indeed the only normal person among a thousand, while the other nine hundred and ninety-nine eventually turned out to be as mad as hatters.

And who else was I? (As if, having seen my double, I suddenly couldn’t find out enough about myself - couldn’t get enough of myself.) Let me be someone else as well, play someone else: a pioneer, a deserter, a soccer referee or at least a linesman.

And what was I like, considering my double there in the restroom’s white neon glare? Not special. Not that bad. Maybe somewhat deficient in that certain something, but not entirely deficient either. Far from being a star, but if an idiot, a village idiot, not a provincial or city idiot. And what else was I like? And in what way? And in what other way? Well, what d’you know! Yes, just look at that! You didn’t expect that, did you? Look, just look! Yes, just look. Look!”
Peter Handke, Quiet Places: Collected Essays
