Drive, drive, and drive some more...

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Handsome Carriages At Marstallmuseum

Last week, I featured golden carriages while I was at Marstallmuseum in Munich. Here are a few more that look somewhat like cars. They do look handsome, if I may say so myself.

I had a definite sense of somehow being a passenger in an evil vehicle crusing through Paradise.
― Sam Shepard, Cruising Paradise

The ultimate concept car will move so fast, even at rest, as to be invisible. 
― J.G. Ballard

The sound of the car. When he’s waiting he can never quite recall it. I’ve forgotten, he tells himself. But then it comes back to him, often in pauses between the waiting, after he’s stopped thinking about it. And then she comes, and he recognizes the sound in an instant; he hears it with his tummy, it’s my tummy that remembers the sound, not me, he thinks to himself. And no sooner has he heard the car than he sees it too, from the corner of the window, her blue car coming round the bend behind the banks of snow, and she turns in at the house and drives up the little slope to the front door.
― Hanne Ørstavik, Love

I drive a beat-up Mercury Cougar, with the windows down and the music up. I seek my identity in toughness – but it is Morrie’s softness that draws me, and because he doesn’t look at me as a kid trying to be something more than I am, I relax.
― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

The Gray Man hated his current rental car. He got the distinct impression it hadn’t been handled enough by humans when it was young, and now it would never be pleasant to be around.
― Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves

Very gently. Like there are eggshells on your pedals, and you don’t want to break them. That’s how you drive in the rain. 
― Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

Civilization is a myth. That is the truth this world has taught us. We have not risen above our baser instincts… That is what always has and always will drive us.
― Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead, Vol. 26: Call to Arms

It’s a dreadful world with only your own heart to drive you.
― Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two

As we drove, I imagined we were standing still and the world was coming toward us. 
― Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

“Learn to drive?”
“Never,” said Quentin. “My mission in life is to be a passenger.”
― Diana Wynne Jones, Archer’s Goon
