"Don’t simply seek interesting surroundings, but be continually interested in whatever surrounds you."

"It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end."

― Ernest Hemingway

Trains and time travel

inspirationfever:

I don’t understand why people don’t like traveling by train every day. It’s the moment you can slowly wake up to the soft babbling around you of the others you share your morning with while passing a soothing landscape. It’s like a short travel through time where you’re allowed to be bored and you can think about your life as it is now after a stressful and busy day in your hectic life.

"Half the people have no place to go and all day to get there. The other half know exactly where we’re going and are late."

The Last Unicorn

"Sometimes, a novel is like a train: the first chapter is a comfortable seat in an attractive carriage, and the narrative speeds up. But there are other sorts of trains, and other sorts of novels. They rush by in the dark; passengers framed in the lighted windows are smiling and enjoying themselves."

Jane Smiley
