“Travel, which was once either a necessity or an adventure, has become very largely a commodity, and from all sides we are persuaded into thinking that it is a social requirement, too.”
“The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes "sight-seeing."”
Daniel J. Boorstin
“Necessity is the mother of "taking chances"”
“While I recognize the necessity for a basis of observed reality... true art lies in a reality that is felt.”
“Our necessities never equal our wants”
“It may be that the deep necessity of art is the examination of self-deception.”
“Central heating, French rubber goods, and cookbooks are three amazing proofs of man's ingenuity in transforming necessity into art, and of these, cookbooks are perhaps most lastingly delightful.”
M. F. K. Fisher
