"O, never shall sun that morrow see! Your face, my thane, is as a book where men may read strange matters. O beguile the time, look like the time, bear welcome in your eye, your hand, your tongue, look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent underneath."

-Lady Macbeth
The Tragedy of Macbeth
William Shakespeare

"sound, music! come, my queen, take hands with me,
and rock the ground whereon these sleepers be.
now thou and i are new in amity,
and will tomorrow midnight solemnly
dance in duke theseus' house triumphantly,
and bless it to all fair prosperity:
there shall the pairs of faithful lovers be
wedded, with theseus, all in jollity."

oberon, a midsummer night's dream, act 4, scene 1

"You can relax here," the manager said.
I thought: I don't want to relax. If I wanted to relax, I would not have come to Africa.

---------------

What was I doing? Making progress, I felt. From the shores of the MEditerranean, via the Pillars of Hercules, I was proceeding, by degrees, deeper into Africa. Travel is transition, and at its best it is a journey from home, a setting forth. I hated parachuting into a place. I needed to be able to link one place to another. One of the problems I had with travel in general was the ease and speed with which a person could be transported from the familiar to the strange, the moonshot whereby the New York office worker, say, is insinuated overnight into the middle of Africa to gape at gorillas. That was just a way of feeling foreign. The other way going slowly, crossing national frontiers, scuttling past razor wires with my bag and my passport, was the best way of being reminded that there was a relationship between Here and There, and that a travel narrative was the story of There and Back.

I'm not sure that Dom Perignon is three times as good as Moet, but I will swear that Yquem is three times better than, say, Rieussec. If drinking Sauternes in general is a little like reading Walter Pater on Leonardo da Vinci, drinking Yquem is like being Leonardo.

Peace is, a pervasive dulling of the senses, a decadence afflicting the culture, evinced by a growing obsession with low entertainment. The virtues of extremity –honor, loyalty, sacrifice- are lifted as shoddy icons, currency for the cheapest of labors. The longer peace lasts, the more those words are used, and the weaker they become. Sentimentality pervades daily life. All becomes a mockery of itself, and the spirit grows...restless
The reasons matter not – what matters is that war is fashioned from peace, and once the journey is began, an irresistible momentum is born. Peace is born of relief, endured in exhaustion and dies with false rememberance.

"And when you're consoled (everyone is eventually consoled), you'll be glad you've known me. You'll always be my friend. You'll feel like laughing with me. And you'll open your windows sometimes just for the fun of it... And your friends will be amazed to see you laughing while you're looking up at the sky. Then you'll tell them, 'Yes, it's the stars. They always make me laugh!"

13 The carpenter measures with a line
and makes an outline with a marker;
he roughs it out with chisels
and marks it with compasses.
He shapes it in the form of man,
of man in all his glory,
that it may dwell in a shrine.

14 He cut down cedars,
or perhaps took a cypress or oak.
He let it grow among the trees of the forest,
or planted a pine, and the rain made it grow.

15 It is man's fuel for burning;
some of it he takes and warms himself,
he kindles a fire and bakes bread.
But he also fashions a god and worships it;
he makes an idol and bows down to it.

16 Half of the wood he burns in the fire;
over it he prepares his meal,
he roasts his meat and eats his fill.
He also warms himself and says,
"Ah! I am warm; I see the fire."

17 From the rest he makes a god, his idol;
he bows down to it and worships.
He prays to it and says,
"Save me; you are my god."

18 They know nothing, they understand nothing;
their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see,
and their minds closed so they cannot understand.

19 No one stops to think,
no one has the knowledge or understanding to say,
"Half of it I used for fuel;
I even baked bread over its coals,
I roasted meat and I ate.
Shall I make a detestable thing from what is left?
Shall I bow down to a block of wood?"

---The Prophet Isaiah, Book Of Isaiah 44:13-19, The Holy Bible

"Come and play with me,"proposed the little prince.
"I cannot play with you," the fox said. "I am not tamed."
"What does that mean---'tame'?"
"It is an act too often neglected," said the fox."It means to establish ties."
"'To establish ties'?"
"Just that," said the fox. "To me,you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need for you. And you, on your part,have no need for me.To you, I'm nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, Ishall be unique in all the world......."

Do not put your faith on such trinkets of deceit. This is not England and our ways are old.

The opposite of change is not the absence of change but change in the other direction.

[edit]
I was thinking about that conversation between the Little Prince and the Fox too, which I find very moving. :D

there's a creature inside of you that i'm not good enough to bring out, not strong enough to reach. i sometimes have the feeling you've been here a long time, more than one lifetime, and that you've dwelt in private places none of the rest of us has even dreamed about. you frighten me even though you're gentle with me. if i didn't fight to control myself with you, i feel like i might lose my center and never get back
