  4. "You learn to count the quiet winds
An hour with no unprompted tears
And not to count the deadly days
As they fade into years
You learn to stand alone at last
So brave and bold and strong and stout
You learn somehow to like the dark
And even love the doubt
You learn to hold your life inside you
And never let it out
You learn to live and live and die and live
You learn to live without
You learn to live without"
    — If/Then (via ginmar)

  10. "

    I’ve travelled every way possible, and I’ve learned you need only two things (besides good health): some time and money.


    Here is what I learned from 40 years of traveling: Of the two modes, it is far better to have more time than money.

    When you have abundant time you can get closer to core of a place. You can hang around and see what really happens. You can meet a wider variety of people. You can slow down until the hour that the secret vault is opened. You have enough time to learn some new words, to understand what the real prices are, to wait out the weather, to get to that place that takes a week in a jeep.

    Money is an attempt to buy time, but it rarely is able to buy any of the above.
