My sentiments exactly

A quote I came across recently which I could really identify with. Perhaps you can too:

Now... they resolved to go back to their own land; because the years have a kind of emptiness when we spend too many of them on a foreign shore. But... if we do return, we find that the native air has lost its invigorating quality, and that life has shifted its reality to the spot where we have deemed ourselves only temporary residents. Thus, between two countries, we have none at all...
-Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun
