    And she, by passion once demented
    MThat woman out of Botticelli—
    She brews and bottles, unfermented,
    The stupid and abiding jelly.
    Peter De Vries (b. 1910)

    —Peter De Vries (b. 1910)

    Travel is like adultery: one is always tempted to be unfaithful to one’s own country. To have imagination is inevitably to be dissatisfied with where you live. There is in men, as Peter Quennell said, “a centrifugal tendency.” In our wanderlust, we are lovers looking for consummation.
    Anatole Broyard (1910–1990)
