True Voyageurs

Recommended Posts

"Mais les vrais voyageurs sont ceux-là seuls qui partent
Pour partir; coeurs légers, semblables aux ballons,
De leur fatalité jamais ils ne s'écartent,
Et, sans savoir pourquoi, disent toujours: Allons!"

 

"But the true voyagers are solely those who depart
Just to be departing; hearts light, like balloons,
They never turn aside from their fatality
And without knowing why they always say: 'Let's go!'"

 

Charles Baudelaire, "Le voyage", Les fleurs du mal (1861)
