There was a documentary on Peter Rice, "An Engineer Imagines", on TV. (Still available to watch for 28 days.) One of the contributors said, "Nothingness is the meeting place of the noble traveller." I think that he was not a native English speaker, so he might have been translating this from his own language. It sounds like a quotation, but I've not found it if it is. It sounds profound, but what on earth does it mean? Is it nonsense?

Whereabouts on the programme is this phrase?

Hopefully someone will come along who actually knows the answer.

sounds like a buddist chant....
He was by all accounts a marvellous fellow who died too soon.
It's at 32:43 and it's Humbert Camerlo quoting a 'Taoist philosopher' as he says, so a Frenchman quoting a far eastern philosopher so at least a couple of translations having taken place :-)
