The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.
— G.K. Chesterton
It is not necessarily at home that we best encounter our true selves. The furniture insists that we cannot change because it does not; the domestic setting keeps us tethered to the person we are in ordinary life, but who may not be who we essentially are.
— Alain de Botton
