Text Quotes
An island is a fixed and finite piece of geography, and usually the whole place has been carved up and claimed  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I believe I have a sunny disposition, and am not naturally a grouch. It takes a lot of optimism, after all, to be a traveler  (Paul Theroux Quotes) There are two worlds: the world of the tourist and the world of everyone else. Often they’re side by side. But the tourist doesn’t actually see how people live  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I’m a tourist, a glorified tourist. I’m not doing it to have a good time or to lie in the sun  (Paul Theroux Quotes) All politicians, even the most idealistic ones, are looking for money, sucking up to rich people  (Paul Theroux Quotes) Basically, what you find out is the limits of your patience and your strength and your capacity to adapt. You find that out in travel and being alone and being tested. So that’s a great thing  (Paul Theroux Quotes) When I’m writing, I like to travel alone. If you really want to find out about a place, you need to be as free as possible to be spontaneous. You also need to be lonely, because loneliness is a great teacher, too  (Paul Theroux Quotes) Loneliness in travel directs you and tells you about yourself. You don’t become lonely unless you’re alone  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I don’t want to be the honored guest. I want to be the invisible person  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I don’t think that it’s possible to have a truly rewarding experience in travel if it’s simple  (Paul Theroux Quotes) If people are driving you around to look at animals, that’s wonderful. That’s educational, but it’s not necessarily enlightening and you’re not finding out much about yourself  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I grew up in an era of thinking of travel as escape. The idea that you could conceivably have a new life, go somewhere, fall in love, have little children under the palm trees  (Paul Theroux Quotes) There’s a lot of sensuality that I associate with travel. And that’s romance  (Paul Theroux Quotes) You can’t save the rhinos and you can’t preserve a culture. I’m very pessimistic. Once it’s gone, it’s over  (Paul Theroux Quotes) Gain a modest reputation for being unreliable and you will never be asked to do a thing  (Paul Theroux Quotes) In the best travel books the word alone is implied on every exciting page, as subtle and ineradicable as a watermark  (Paul Theroux Quotes) There is no faster way of destroying a man, or mocking his ideas, than making him fashionable  (Paul Theroux Quotes) Travel is a vanishing act, a solitary trip down a pinched line of geography to oblivion  (Paul Theroux Quotes) Railways are irresistible bazaars, snaking along perfectly level no matter what the landscape, improving your mood with speed, and never upsetting your drink  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I like the idea of isolation, I like the idea of solitude. You can be connected and have a phone and still be lonely  (Paul Theroux Quotes) It’s only when you’re alone that you realize where you are. You have nothing to fall back on except your own resources  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I don’t think I’ve ever seen a person having a serious conversation on a cellphone. It’s like a kiddie thing, a complete time waster  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I’m constantly running across people who have never heard of books I think they should read  (Paul Theroux Quotes) My house is a place I have spent many years improving to the point where I have no desire to leave it  (Paul Theroux Quotes) People talk about the pain of writing, but very few people talk about the pleasure and satisfaction  (Paul Theroux Quotes) You can’t write about a friend, you can only write about a former friend  (Paul Theroux Quotes) I know there are writers who feel unhappy with domesticity and who even manufacture domestic turmoil in order to have something to write about. With me, though, the happier I feel, the better I write  (Paul Theroux Quotes) For years I felt that being respectable meant maintaining a sinister complacency, and the disreputable freedom I sought helped make me a writer  (Paul Theroux Quotes) Most travel, and certainly the rewarding kind, involves depending on the kindness of strangers, putting yourself into the hands of people you don’t know and trusting them with your life  (Paul Theroux Quotes) It is fatal to know too much at the outcome: boredom comes as quickly to the traveler who knows his route as to the novelist who is over certain of his plot  (Paul Theroux Quotes)
