Hugo of St. Victor, qtd. in Edward Said, ‘The Mind of Winter’.

“The man who finds his homeland sweet is still a tender beginner; he to whom every soil is as his native one is already strong; but he is perfect to whom the entire world is a foreign land. The tender soul has fixed his love on one spot in the world; the strong man has extended his love to all places; the perfect man has extinguished his.”

One of my favourite quotes about travel and nomadic life. I think it speaks for itself.
