Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
-Cecil Beaton



Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of every day, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art.
-Freya Stark



More than kisses, letters mingle souls; for thus, friends absent speak.
-John Donne



You will try to run and he will let you, but he will be standing exactly where you left him when you went ahead and lost your mind, not because he's a pushover but because he understands you are worth waiting for. And you are, not because he proved it to you, but because he gave you the time to realize it yourself.
-Anais Escobar
