“I have always longed to be part of the outward life, to be out there at the edge of things, to let the human taint wash away in emptiness and silence as the fox sloughs his smell into the cold unworldliness of water; to return to town a stranger. Wandering flushes a glory that fades with arrival.”
—The Peregrine, by J.A. Baker (1967)
“Right now, we are at the edge of a new era of unlimited potential. Nobody can see what is going to happen; nobody knows.
There are no experts, and there's no reason slavishly to follow anybody's instructions about anything.
Do it your way, and have all the fun you can.“
—Electronic Life, by Michael Crichton (1983)
“The Edge... There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.”
—Hell's Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga, by Hunter S. Thompson (1967)
