Whenever humanity seems condemned to heaviness, I think I should fly like Perseus into a
different space. I don’t mean escaping into dreams or the irrational. I mean that I have to
change my approach, look at the world from a different perspective, with a different logic and
with fresh methods of cognition and verification. From Six Memos for the Next Millennium by
Italo Calvino, 1988.
When the virus of restlessness begins to take possession of a wayward man, and the road
away from here seems broad and straight and sweet, the victim must first find in himself a
good and sufficient reason for going. This to the practical bum is not difficult. He has a built-in
garden of reasons to choose from. From Travels with Charley – In Search of America by John
A map of Esmeralda should include, marked in different colored inks, all these routes, solid
and liquid, evident and hidden. It is more difficult to fix on the map the routes of the swallows,
who cut the air over the roofs, dropping long invisible parabolas with their still wings, darting to
gulp a mosquito, spiraling upward, grazing a pinnacle, dominating from every point of their airy
paths all the points of the city. From Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, 1972.
