"I sat down and wrote that there is a fine balance between the absolute calm of arrival and the excitement of departure, then crossed out 'fine' and added 'both are indispensable' at the end, and began to wonder what I had really meant." Quote from Tove Jansson's story 'Taking Leave,' found in "A Winter Book," published by Sort of Books (www.sortof.co.uk/books/a-winter-book/)

“There are those who stay at home and those who go away, and it has always been so. Everyone can choose for himself, but he must choose while there is still time and never change his mind.” ― Tove Jansson, Moominvalley in November
