On Belonging

August 14, 2011

“…if you arrive in a new country as an adult, it is probably impossible to ever feel truly at home there.  You can always make a virtue out of this:  You may imagine you perceive things more clearly than the complacent, accepting natives; you may have deep affection for the place and grow accustomed to its funny ways; you may even decide to stay there forever, but still you will always be a foreigner.”

— Gully Wells, The House in France
