Inspiring travel quotes

From my phone on SaturdayHere's an older piece from Brave New Traveler listing some great quotes: The 50 Most Inspiring Travel Quotes of All Time

Here are a few I especially like today:

  • “People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.” - Dagobert D. Runes
  • “Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.” - Seneca
  • “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” - Robert Louis Stevenson
  • “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” - Henry Miller
  • “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” - Maya Angelou
  • “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
  • “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” - Lao Tzu
  • “Not all those who wander are lost.” - J. R. R. Tolkien
  • “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
