My personal choice of travel quotes
which I found both the most inspiring and true
Don´t listen to what they say. Go and see.
Adventure will hurt you. But monotony will kill you.
Travelling – leaves you speechless. Then – turns you into a story teller.
[S]He who would travel happily must travel light.
[Antoine de Saint-Exupéry]
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Riding a bicycle is the summit of human endeavour – an almost neutral environmental effect coupled with the ability to travel substantial distances without disturbing anybody. The bike is the perfect marriage of technology and human energy.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that 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.
Leave nothing but footprints. Take nothing but pictures. Keep nothing but memories.
I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
Jobs fill your pockets but adventures will fill your soul.
