― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

“<…> though he found that if you are stupid enough to bury a camera underground you won’t be taking many pictures with it afterwards. Thus the story has no picture book for the period May 10, 1991 – January 7, 1992. But this is not important.

“A month later Billie sits at her dining room table, sifting through the pictorial record of Chris’s final days. It is all she can do to force herself to examine the fuzzy snapshots. As she studies the pictures, she breaks down from time to time, weeping as only a mother who has outlived a child can weep, betraying a sense of loss so huge and irreparable that the mind balks at taking its measure. Such bereavement, witnessed at close range, makes even the most eloquent apologia for high-risk activities ring fatuous and hollow.” – describing the mother of Chris McCandless after learning of his starvation in the wild”

― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

 

“Sometimes I think it was like he was storing up company for the times when he knew nobody would be around”

“He had spent the previous four years, as he saw it, preparing to fulfill an absurd and onerous duty: to graduate from college.

The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
