on expatriation

"A day comes when these old people grow ill and helpless, far from the familiar sights and sounds of their youth, self-exiled for reasons which have become dim in their memories, in an alien place which they never saw as it is and quite understood...."

(Luigi Barzini)

(quoted by John Cohassey in his book "Hemingway and Pound")
