why road trip

There is no road. The road is made by walking.
       + Antonio Machado

The closer you get to real matter, rock, air, fire, wood, the more spiritual the world is.
       + Gary Snyder

For some time now it has seemed to me that the two questions we should ask of any strong landscape are these: firstly, what do I know when I am in this place that I cannot know anywhere else? And then, vainly, what does this place know of me that I cannot know myself?
       + Robert McFarlane

Pilgrim Rues:
The rule of resonance: a smaller place with which we resonate is more important than a place of great pilgrimmage.
The rule of correspondence: a place within a landscape corresponds to a pace within the heart.

       + Vaclav Cilek

it is right here!
it is right now!
it has always been so!

       + taizan maezumi

All of life is a foreign country.
       + Jack Kerouac, letter to John Clellon Holmes (24 June 1949)

Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.
       + Erol Ozan

Now, on this road trip, my mind seemed to uncrinkle, to breathe, to present to itself a cure for a disease it had not, until now, known it had.
       + Elizabeth Berg, The Year of Pleasures

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is an adventure wrongly considered.
       + G. K. Chesterton

Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.
       + Jack Kerouac

Half the fun of the travel is the aesthetic of lostness.
       + Ray Bradbury

Wonders of a journey consist far more of such intangible experiences and unexpected situations than of factual things and events of material reality.
       + Lama Anagarika Govinda
