Traveling is a fool's paradise. Our first journeys discover to us the indifference of places. At home I dream that at Naples, at Rome, I can be intoxicated with beauty, and lose my sadness. I pack my trunk, embrace my friends, embark on the sea, and at last wake up in Naples, and there beside me is the stern fact, the sad self, unrelenting, identical, that I fled from. I seek the Vatican, and the palaces. I affect to be intoxicated with sights and suggestions, but I am not intoxicated. My giant goes with me wherever I go. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature and books belong to the eyes that see them. It depends on the mood of the man, whether he shall see the sunset or the fine poem.

Temperament is the iron wire on which the beads are strung. Of what use is fortune or talent to a cold and defective store? Ralph Waldo Emerson
