Bury me with my library card. I was kind to the devil once and I’m placing my bets on Hell being well stocked with great books.

I’ve travelled every way possible, and I’ve learned you need only two things (besides good health): some time and money.


Here is what I learned from 40 years of traveling: Of the two modes, it is far better to have more time than money.

When you have abundant time you can get closer to core of a place. You can hang around and see what really happens. You can meet a wider variety of people. You can slow down until the hour that the secret vault is opened. You have enough time to learn some new words, to understand what the real prices are, to wait out the weather, to get to that place that takes a week in a jeep.

Money is an attempt to buy time, but it rarely is able to buy any of the above.

Kevin Kelly explores why more time is better than more money in a beautiful meditation on travel.

I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love. Kuba Wojewodzki, Polish journalist and comedian.  (via thatkindofwoman)

It’s a red tide, Lester, this life of ours. The shit they make us eat day after day, the boss, the wife, etc, wearing us down, if you don’t stand up to it, let ‘em know you’re an ape, deep down where it counts, you’re just going to get washed away. Fargo 1x1: The Crocodile’s Dilemma
