"Travel is useful, it exercises the imagination. All the rest is disappointment and fatigue. Our journey is entirely imaginary. That
is its strength.
It goes from life to death. People, animals, cities, things, all are
imagined. It’s a novel, just a fictitious narrative. Littré says so,
and he’s never wrong.
And besides, in the first place, anyone can do as much. You just
have to close your eyes.
It’s on the other side of life."
Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Journey to the end of the night
