Albert Camus
“If absolute truth belongs to anyone in this world, it certainly does not belong to the man or party that claims to possess it.”
Albert Camus

Edward Abbey
“There's another disadvantage to the use of the flashlight: like many other mechanical gadgets it tends to separate a man from the world around him. If I switch it on my eyes adapt to it and I can see only the small pool of light it makes in front of me; I am isolated. Leaving the flashlight in my pocket where it belongs, I remain a part of the environment I walk through and my vision though limited has no sharp or definite boundary.”
Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

T.S. Eliot
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
T.S. Eliot

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Lao Tzu
“Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.”
Lao Tzu
