“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, and catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”
Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain)
“We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”
Leonardo da Vinci
“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. All plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion
are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.”
These are some quotes to ponder over. After all traveling is the best way to learn about new cultures, ways of life and an experience that shapes your life.
“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
“People who don’t travel cannot have a global view. All they see is what’s in front of them.
Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live.”
“Own only what you can always carry with you: know languages,
know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.”
“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.”
“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
Robert Louis Stevenson

Daniel J. Boorstin
