railway termini

Railway termini…are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return.

E. M. Forster, Howard’s End (1910)

What affects men sharply about a foreign nation is not so much finding or not finding familiar things; it is rather not finding them in the familiar place.

G. K. Chesterton, Generally Speaking, “On Flags” (1928)
