The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it - basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.
Charles Bukowski, Tales of Ordinary Madness (via larmoyante)

Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook (via larmoyante)
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
