Robert Harbison
“To put a city in a book, to put the world on one sheet of paper -- maps are the most condensed humanized spaces of all...They make the landscape fit indoors, make us masters of sights we can't see and spaces we can't cover.”
Robert Harbison, Eccentric Spaces

Henry David Thoreau
“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”
Henry David Thoreau

Josef Pieper
“Patience is not the indiscriminate acceptance of any sort of evil: "It is not the one who does not flee from evil who is patient but rather the one who does not let himself thereby be drawn into disordered sadness." To be patient means not to allow the serenity and discernmet of one's soul to be taken away. Patience, then, is not the tear-streaked mirror of a "broken" life (as one might almost think, to judge from what is frequently shown and praised under this term) but rather is the radiant essence of final freedom from harm. Patience is, as Hildegard of Bingen states, "the pillar that is weakened by nothing.”
Josef Pieper, A Brief Reader on the Virtues of the Human Heart

Viktor E. Frankl
“Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.”
Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

Viktor E. Frankl
“No man should judge unless he asks himself in absolute honesty whether in a similar situation he might not have done the same.”
Viktor Emil Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
