The rich take life one financial year at a time. The poor take life one meal at a time. ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The Chinese say that there is no scenery in your home town. They’re right.

You feel more alive, less cocooned. ― Jane Wilson-Howarth, A Glimpse of Eternal Snows: A Journey of Love and Loss in the Himalayas
