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.”

John Masefield
Sea-fever

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

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

Megan Harlan
“At a certain point I need to go wandering. My feet need to hit earth, again and again, that bone-filling drumbeat. I need the sky's colored threads to tangle inside me, pull me somewhere new.”
Megan Harlan, Mobile Home: A Memoir in Essays

Jasper Fforde
“Rabbits never drove fast. They like to enjoy the view, didn't much care for speed and besides, it was wasteful of fuel. If you want to get somewhere a long way away, just leave early. Days, if that's required. Or, as Samuel C. Rabbit had it: 'nhffnfhfiifhfnnffhrhrfhrf' or 'to travel joyously is better than to arrive.”
Jasper Fforde, The Constant Rabbit

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

“I knew that the return trip is the real journey, when it floods the days that follow, so much so that it creates the prolonged sensation of one time getting lost in another, of one space losing itself in another.”
Michèle Lesbre, The Red Sofa

“Le livre refermé, c'est le sac qu'il faut boucler”

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
