Barry Finlay
“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”
Barry Finlay, Kilimanjaro and Beyond

Graham Greene
“Except for the sound of the rain, on the road, on the roofs, on the umbrella, there was absolute silence: only the dying moan of the sirens continued for a moment or two to vibrate within the ear. It seemed to Scobie later that this was the ultimate border he had reached in happiness: being in darkness, alone, with the rain falling, without love or pity.”
Graham Greene, The Heart of the Matter
