Books:
Operators and Things"by Barbara O'Brien.Though this is nonfiction--a story of a women's strees-induced schizoid break--it2s still the strangest revision of ordinary reality ever depicted.Robert Stone,"Dog Soldiers". An absolutely harrowing and deep philosophical thriller,about heroin snuggling in early-70s California. Stone's"Outerbridge Reach" is much less painfull,see also"Gradlevel Lit".Thomas Pynchon,"The Crying of Lot49".A really enjoyable short novel taht's also incredibly rich in ideas."Vineland"is readable but comparatively dull.

"Traveling is a brutality.It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all thar familiar comfort of home and friends.You are constantly off balance.Nothing is yours except the essential things-air,sleep,dreams,the sea,the sky-all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it."-Cesare Paves

"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."-St. Augustine

"Adventure is a path.Real adventure-self-determined,self-motivated,often risky-forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world.The world the way it is,not the way you imagine it.Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness.In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind-and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both.This will change you.Nothing will ever again be blac-and-white."-Mark Jenkins

"If you reject the food,ignore the customs,fear the religion and avoid the people,you might better stay at home."-James Michener

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.So throw off the bowlines,sail away from the safe harbor.Catch the trade winds in your sails.Explore.Dream.Discover."-Mark Twain

"No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old,familliar pillow."-Lin Yutang

"People travel to faraway places to watch,in fascination,the kind of people they ignore at home."-Dagobert D.Runes
