“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.” #anthonybourdain #nastybits #socobooks #southcongressbooks #cookbooks

We present “The Royal Book of Oz,” in which The #Scarecrow gets upset when #ProfessorWogglebug tells him that he has no family, so he goes back to the corn-field where Dorothy Gale found him (back in “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”) to trace his "roots." When he fails to return, #Dorothy and the #CowardlyLion set out to search for him... #socobooks #southcongressbooks #oz #royalbookofoz #wonderfulwizardofoz #wizardofoz

“There are too many images, too many cameras now. We’re all being watched. It gets sillier and sillier. As if all action is meaningful. Nothing is really all that special. It’s just life. If all moments are recorded, then nothing is beautiful and maybe photography isn’t an art anymore. Maybe it never was.” #RobertFrank #socobooks #southcongressbooks #photography #hand #hands

“And he gave it for his opinion, that whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass, to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together.” #JonathanSwift #GulliversTravels Of course there are always exceptions...and also notable examples. #socobooks #southcongressbooks #shelfiesaturday #saturdayshelfie

“Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us, guides us. Passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have?" #buffythevampireslayer #angel #socobooks #southcongressbooks #buffy

"My whole life has been spent waiting for an epiphany, a manifestation of God's presence, the kind of transcendent, magical experience that lets you see your place in the big picture. And that is what I had with my first compost heap." #BetteMidler #socobooks #southcongressbooks #compost
