There is no happiness for he who does not travel, Rohita! Thus we have heard. Living in the society of man, the best man becomes a sinner ... Therefore, wander!
The feet of the wanderer are like the flowers, his soul is growing and reaping the fruit; and all his sins are destroyed by his fatigues in wandering. Therefore, wander!
The fortune of him who is sitting, sits; it rises when he rises; it sleeps when he sleeps; it moves when he moves. Therefore, wander!
quoted in Anita Desai's JOURNEY TO ITHACA, p 196
