Inbound rail

RAILROAD, n. The chief of many mechanical devices enabling us to get away from where we are to where we are no better off. For this purpose the railroad is held in highest favor by the optimist, for it permits him to make the transit with great expedition.
- Ambrose Bierce

“…Wherever you go you are burdened with yourself. Wherever you go, there you are."
- Thomas Kempis, Imitation of Christ, ca. A.D. 1440
