the Back Cover --
A man is not old until
regrets take the place of dreams.
Life gives brief moments with another ………. but sometimes in
those short moments we get memories that last a lifetime.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new
landscapes, but in having new eyes.
Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness.
Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
