“What gives value to travel is fear. It is the fact that, at a certain moment, when we are so far from our own country…,we are seized by a vague fear, and an instinctive desire to go back to the protection of old habits. This is the most obvious benefit of travel. At that moment we are feverish but also porous, so that the slightest touch makes us quiver to the depths of our being. We come across a cascade of light, and there is eternity. This is why we should not say that we travel for pleasure. There is no pleasure in traveling, and I look upon it more as an occasion for spiritual testing. If we understand by culture the exercise of our most intimate sense — that of eternity — then we travel for culture. Pleasure takes us away from ourselves in the same way as distraction, in Pascal’s use of the word, takes us away from God. Travel, which is like a greater and graver science, brings us back to ourselves.””
—Albert Camus, from his Jan 1936 notebook entry
|Scipio:||All men have a secret solace. It helps them endure, and they turn to it when life has wearied them beyond enduring.|
|Scipio:||Have you nothing of the kind in your life, no refuge, no mood that makes the tears well up, no consolation?|
|Caligula:||Yes, I have something of the kind.|
|Scipio:||What is it?|
