A Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin on change, journeys, life, losing, metaphor, secrets, and travel

Not so many years ago there was no simpler or more intelligible notion than that of going on a journey. Travel - movement through space - provided the universal metaphor for change. One of the subtle confusions - perhaps one of the secret terrors - of modern life is that we have lost this refuge. No longer do we move through space as we once did.

Daniel J. Boorstin (1914 -)
