      "It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end."

      The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin


      (ETA: we should do a thread for travel/baggage related quotes--I have a notebook full of them)

          Maybe not inspirational in the usual sense, but here's one I like as a philosophy:

          "Sometimes, she reflected, she dressed for courage, sometimes for success, and sometimes for the consolation of knowing that whatever else went wrong, at least she liked her clothes."
          --War for the Oaks, a fantasy novel set in Minneapolis by Emma Bull
          I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

          I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

                            When you don't need an answer there'll be days like this
                            When you don't meet a chancer there'll be days like this
                            When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they fit it
                            Then I must remember there'll be days like this

                              "Build a life you don’t need a vacation from!"

                              I came upon this on my friend’s blog post the other day, and it really stuck with me -- https://www.girlnboots.com/daily-happiness/.

                              I also think that TOOM BIHN and the principles on which it operates reflects this idea!
