Come forth into the light of things / Let Nature be your teacher.

Nature never did betray / The heart that loved her.

The best portion of a good man's life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.

Embracing And Letting Go

The real traveller finds sustenance in equivocation, he is torn between embracing and letting go, and the wrench of disengagement is the essence of his existence, he belongs nowhere.

Read the full quotation from Cees Nooteboom's book Roads To Santiago in my new Turnstone post.

I read the whole quote from Cees Nooteboom - nice. I did not know this writer and will check some of his work. It is so true – I would say that the true traveler find sustenance in… traveling. I would end like he does by saying that the traveler belongs nowhere … and everywhere.
