    "There is something about the desert that doesn't like man, something that mocks his nesting instinct and makes his constructions look feeble and temporary. Yet it's just that inhospitableness that endears the arid rockiness, the places pointy and poisonous, to men looking for its discipline."
    -William Least Heat Moon

    "One always learns one's mystery at the price of one's innocence."

    "I have written much about many places. But the best places of all, I have never mentioned."
    -Edward Abbey

    "Go as far as you dare in a lonely land, you cannot go so far that life and death are not before you."
    -Mary Austin

    "You cannot travel on the path
    Before you have become the path
    Itself."
    -Buddha

    "I have been a stranger in a strange land."
    -The Bible
