Where I am now... leaving

Today we come across an individual who behaves like an automaton, who does not know or understand himself, and the only person that he knows is the person that he is supposed to be, whose meaningless chatter has replaced communicative speech, whose synthetic smile has replaced genuine laughter, and whose sense of dull despair has taken the place of genuine pain. 

Two statements may be said concerning this individual.  One is that he suffers from defects of spontaneity and individuality which may seem to be incurable.  At the same time it may be said of him he does not differ essentially from the millions of the rest of us who walk upon this earth.
-Erich Fromm

What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.
-Emerson

We must not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time.
- T. S. Elliot

Robert Louis Stevenson

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.
