To live and die amongst foreigners may seem less absurd than to live persecuted or tortured by one's fellow countrymen.... But to emigrate is always to dismantle the centre of the world, and so to move into a lost, disoriented one of fragments.
John Berger (b. 1926), British author, critic. And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief As Photos, pt. 2 (1984).
