If you want a place in the sun, you’ve got to put up with a few blisters.
We act like we know it all. You know — and I’ve got it all together … But we don’t know what is going on half the time. We’re scared to death …(of) not finding it … our place … I mean, I’ve had moments — and I knew that there was no other place that I should be — but those are moments and then they go.
– Living Out Loud (movie)
A city is a place where there is no need to wait for next week to get the answer to a question, to taste the food of any country, to find new voices to listen to and familiar ones to listen to again.
It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.

You are really not at home in a place until you have made yourself familiar with how it sounds and resounds.
– Jonathan Ree
Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
They have to take you in.
When we walk through our front door, we should be able to leave the stresses and strains of the outside world. A home should provide us with a sanctuary for the soul, a haven for the sense.

A well run home is a microcosm of sanity in a world that is plainly mad. If a home dosen’t make sense, nothing does.

Home, sweet home; sweet to look at, listen to, to touch, smell and taste. The home is our emotional heartland, a place where the rhythm of events is under our control, a potential pleasure zone for our sensuous being.

All I want is a room somewhere, far away from the cold night air, with one enormous chair.
