“Our deeds still travel with us from afar, and what we have been makes us what we are.”
“There is no moment of delight in any pilgrimage like the beginning of it.”
Charles Dudley Warner
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
Robert Louis Stevenson
“I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.”
George Bernard Shaw
“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” Mark Jenkins
“Wherever you go, go will all your heart.” Confucius
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” Cesare Pavese
“Travel in the younger short, is a part of education; in the elder, is a part of experience.” Francis Bacon
“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”
“Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” Mary Ritter Beard
