"We come and go, but the land is always here. And the people who love it and understand it are the people who own it – for a little while."
"Isn’t it queer: there are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before; like the larks in this country, that have been singing the same five notes over for thousands of years."
"Of all the bewildering things about a new country, the absence of human landmarks is one of the most depressing and disheartening."
