Ever wondered what’it’s like being in the colosseum with very few people about, to help you imagine what had happened on the same ground that you were looking at. Travelling around trying to envisage more than the fact you are in a tourist destination crowded with people .
The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
At the end of a hard days walking it wasn’t the first step that made you feel so bad.
Although gold dust is precious, when it gets in your eyes, it obstructs your vision
To know the road ahead, ask those coming back
While on the road if you want information about an intended destination ask those who have already been.
The path of the enlightened one leaves no track- it is like the path of birds in the sky
He who asks a question is a fool for a minute; he who does not remains a fool forever
A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion
No road to happiness or sorrow… Find them in yourself
When you get to the top of the mountain, keep climbing
A jug fills drop by drop
It just is- Things are what they are and nothing else.
When is Spain- “What’s that bad smell?” “That’s just Spain”
In Italy- pedestrian crossing is just a series of white lines to drive over. If you want to cross them and for cars to actually stop for you, do it with a bold look and stance. Look the driver straight in the eye with intent and start walking and they will stop.
