"I’ve been homesick for countries I’ve never been, and longed to be where where I couldn’t be."
— John Cheever
"I never enjoy anything. I’m always waiting for whatever’s next. I think everyone’s like that…living life in fast forward, never stopping to enjoy the moment, too busy turn to rush through everything so we can get on what we’re really supposed to be doing with our lives. I get these flashes of clarity, brilliant clarity, where, for a second I stop and I think, wait, this is it, this is my life. I better slow down and enjoy it because one day we’re all gonna end up in the ground and that will be it, we’ll be gone."
"I just try to live everyday as if I’ve deliberately come back to this one day to enjoy it as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary ordinary life."
— Tim Lake
