Inspirations

“When I get home I shall write a book about this place… If I ever do get home.” – Alice in Wonderland

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” – Frida Kahlo

“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.” – Leonardo da Vinci

“Wo die Sprache aufhört, fängt die Musik an.” E.T.A. Hofmann

“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.” ~Mary Kay Ash

Sometimes that is not irrational , since it is probable that improbable things will happen!~ Aristotle

Life is like a flower. It can die and wilt at any time, but with a little tender love and care, it will bloom for what seems like forever.

“Um zur Wahrheit zu gelangen, sollte jeder die Meinung seines Gegners zu verteidigen versuchen.” – Jean Paul

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” ~Mark Twain
There is a vast difference between a ‘tourist’ and a ‘traveler.’ The ‘tourist’ goes to visit a faraway place, stays for a few days or weeks, and then returns home. But the ‘traveler’ is at home wherever he may be visiting.”

I agree, the creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” —African Proverb.

I love to travel. All the things you probably hate about traveling – the recycled air, the artificial lighting, the digital juice dispensers, the cheap sushi -are warm reminders that I’m home. – Up In The Air

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” ~Alice in Wonderland

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” ~Audrey Hepburn

“No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” ~Rhett Butler

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”― George Harrison

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

Wenn ich weiter sehen konnte (als du und Descartes), so deshalb, weil ich auf den Schultern von Giganten stand.

…Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.’

You should not see the desert simply as some faraway place of little rain. There are many forms of thirst.

“Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”~Voltaire

Live in such a way that if anyone were to speak badly of you, no one would believe it.

Do not mix de galloping of yer horse, my knight, with the beating of your heart.

“The world is an open book… He who stays in the same place, reads but one page… “~St. Augustine
You must be the change you wish to see in the world -Ghandi

Anyone who lives within their means suffers from lack of imagination.

Wähntest du etwa,

Ich sollte das Leben hassen,
In Wüsten fliehen,
Weil nicht alle
Blütenträume reiften? ~ Goethe

Thou and I art too wise to woo peacefully” ~ Shakespeare

Te amo sin saber como, ni cuándo, ni de donde,

te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo:
así te amo porque no sé amar de otra manera,

sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres,
tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía,
tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño.  ~Pablo Neruda

“Those who wander are not always lost” ~J.R.R Tolkien

“In time we hate that which we often fear”

Et Semper et Nunc. Quod me nutrit me destruit.

verba volant, scripta manent”

“O Progeny of Heav’n, Empyreal Thrones,

“With reason hath deep silence and demur
Seiz’d us, though undismay’d: long is the way
And hard, that out of Hell leads up to Light;
Our prison strong, this huge convex of Fire,
Outrageous to devour, immures us round
Ninefold and gates of burning Adamant
Barred over us prohibit all egress.” -Milton

Rise and rise again until lambs become lions

Dolce far niente.
