Favorite Travel Quotes
“A quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business.”A.A.Milne
I am a quote person so I have a lot of favorite quotes – about everything. I start every day with a quote as do my friends and family on my quote list. Someone else’s words have always helped me to find my own. Here are a few of my favorite travel quotes.
“There is a time when it is necessary to abandon the used clothes, which already have the shape of our body and to forget our paths, which takes us always to the same places. This is the time to cross the river: and if we don’t dare to do it, we will have stayed, forever beneath ourselves.” Fernando Pessoa
“Walkers are ‘practitioners of the city,’ for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities. Just as language limits what can be said, architecture limits where one can walk, but the walker invents other ways to go.” Rebecca Solnit
“I had an inheritance from my father,
It was the moon and the sun.
And though I roam all over the world,
The spending of it’s never done.” Ernest Hemingway
“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” Jack Kerouac
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” Henry Miller
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” Jawaharial Nehru
“What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do – especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.” William Least Heat Moon
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” Roald Dahl
“All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage and I promise you something great will come of it.” Cameron Crowe and Aline McKenna
What you’ll want a thousand years from now is this: a memory that beats like a heart– a travel memory, of what it was to walk here, alive and warm and textured within.” Tara Moore
“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” Dr. Seuss
“Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith.” Margaret Shepherd
“Better to see something once, than to hear about it a thousand times.”Mongolian proverb
“If you smile at me, i will understand because that is something everybody everywhere does in the same language,” Crosby Stills Nash and Young
“Remember what Bilbo used to say: ‘It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”J.R.R. Tolkien
