Travel teaches you things

“And many rose from their meal, upsetting chairs, others growing pale, ran along the corridors to the library, and the question asked in many languages, was heard; “What is it? What has happened?’ And no one was able to answer it clearly, no one understood anything, for until this very day men still wonder most at death and most absolutely refuse to believe in it.”

– Ivan Bunin, “The Gentleman from San Francisco”
