[Update] I have been getting a lot of hits on the “quote from into the wild” posts — the ones like this that are just a quote without my personal context of the book and movie… So I am going to put in links to my posts on:
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance , and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth, were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board. The hospitality was as cold as the ices.
