"Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home."

Consider Phlebas  - Iain M. Banks

 "IV. DEATH BY WATER

 

Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead,
Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep seas swell
And the profit and loss.
                                        A current under sea
Picked his bones in whispers. As he rose and fell
He passed the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool.
                                       Gentile or Jew
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you."

 

- T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land
