77,914.  Clay lies still, but blood’s a rover;

Breath’s a ware that will not keep.

Up lad: when the journey’s over

They’ll be time enough for sleep.  A E Houseman, A Shropshire Lad

 

 

89,786.  The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  (Step & Journey)  Lao Tzu, attributed

 

 

91,631.  Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,

Healthy, free, the world before me,

The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.  (Travel & Journey & Tramp)  Walt Whitman, Song of the Open Road 1871

 

 

91,636.  Must I serve a long apprenticehood

To foreign passages, and in the end,

Having my freedom, boast of nothing else

91,639.  The endless chatter of this journey had wearied me.  Peter Ackroyd, The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein

91,641.  ‘A splendid afternoon to set out!,’ said one of the friends who was seeing me off, peering at the rain and rolling up the window.  (Travel & Journey)  Patrick Leigh Fermor, Loose as the Wind

 

91,642.  It was still a couple of hours till dawn when we dropped anchor in the Hook of Holland.  Snow covered everything and the flakes blew in a slant across the cones of the lamps and confused the glowing discs that spaced out the untrodden quay.  I hadn’t known that Rotterdam was a few miles inland.  I was still the only passenger on the train and this solitary entry, under cover of night and hushed by snow, completed the illusion that I was slipping into Rotterdam, and into Europe, through a secret door.  (Travel & Journey)  ibid.

91,634.  What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye.  But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.  (Travel & Journey & Road)  Jack Kerouac, On the Road 

 

 

91,645.  One who journeying

Along a way he knows not, having crossed

A place of drear extent, before him sees

A river rushing swiftly toward the deep,

And all its tossing current white with foam,

And stops and turns, and measures back his way.  (Journey & Travel)  Homer, The Iliad V:749

 

 

95,118.  It was a harder day’s journey than yesterday’s, for there were long and weary hills to climb; and in journeys, as in life, it is a great deal easier to go down hill than up.  However, they kept on, with unabated perseverance, and the hill has not yet lifted its face to heaven that perseverance will not gain the summit of at last.  Charles Dickens, Nicholas Nickleby

 

 

95,251.  In the third-class seat sat the jouneying boy,

And the roof-lamp’s oily flame

Played down on his listless form and face,

Bewrapt past knowing to what he was going,

Or whence he came ... (Boy & Journey & Train)  Thomas Hardy, Midnight on the Great Western

 

 

97,063.  Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide after he had sacked the famous town of Troy. Many cities did he visit, and many were the nations with whose manners and customs he was acquainted; moreover he suffered much by sea while trying to save his own life and bring his men safely home; but do what he might he could not save his men, for they perished through their own sheer folly in eating the cattle of the Sun-god Hyperion; so the god prevented them from ever reaching home.  Tell me, too, about all these things, O daughter of Jove, from whatsoever source you may know them. 

So now all who escaped death in battle or by shipwreck had got safely home except Ulysses, and he, though he was longing to return to his wife and country, was detained by the goddess Calypso, who had got him into a large cave and wanted to marry him.  But as years went by, there came a time when the gods settled that he should go back to Ithaca; even then, however, when he was among his own people, his troubles were not yet over; nevertheless all the gods had now begun to pity him except Neptune, who still persecuted him without ceasing and would not let him get home.  (Adventure & Journey)  Homer, The Odyssey I 

 

97,064.  But as the sun was rising from the fair sea into the firmament of heaven to shed light on mortals and immortals, they reached Pylos the city of Neleus.  Now the people of Pylos were gathered on the sea shore to offer sacrifice of black bulls to Neptune lord of the Earthquake.  There were nine guilds with five hundred men in each, and there were nine bulls to each guild.  As they were eating the inward meats and burning the thigh bones [on the embers] in the name of Neptune, Telemachus and his crew arrived, furled their sails, brought their ship to anchor, and went ashore.  (Adventure & Journey & Ship)  ibid.  III

 

97,065.  ‘Menelaus, son of Atreus, and you my good friends, sons of honourable men (which is as Jove wills, for he is the giver both of good and evil, and can do what he chooses), feast here as you will, and listen while I tell you a tale in season.  I cannot indeed name every single one of the exploits of Ulysses, but I can say what he did when he was before Troy, and you Achaeans were in all sorts of difficulties.  He covered himself with wounds and bruises, dressed himself all in rags, and entered the enemy’s city looking like a menial or a beggar, and quite different from what he did when he was among his own people.  In this disguise he entered the city of Troy, and no one said anything to him.  I alone recognized him and began to question him, but he was too cunning for me. When, however, I had washed and anointed him and had given him clothes, and after I had sworn a solemn oath not to betray him to the Trojans till he had got safely back to his own camp and to the ships, he told me all that the Achaeans meant to do.’  (Adventure & Journey & Troy)  ibid.  IV 

 

97,066.  ‘I have come, sir,’ replied Telemachus, ‘to see if you can tell me anything about my father.  I am being eaten out of house and home; my fair estate is being wasted, and my house is full of miscreants who keep killing great numbers of my sheep and oxen, on the pretence of paying their addresses to my mother.  Therefore, I am suppliant at your knees if haply you may tell me about my father’s melancholy end, whether you saw it with your own eyes, or heard it from some other traveller; for he was a man born to trouble.  Do not soften things out of any pity for myself, but tell me in all plainness exactly what you saw.  If my brave father Ulysses ever did you loyal service either by word or deed, when you Achaeans were harassed by the Trojans, bear it in mind now as in my favour and tell me truly all.’  (Adventure & Journey)  ibid.  IV
