“Don’t Wait For The Postcard. Write It!”
“Live with no excuses; travel with no regrets”
“An opportunity to open one’s eyes, mind, and heart”
-Nancy Novogrod, former editor of Travel + Leisure
“I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way”
-Carl Sagan astronomer
“I met a lot of people in Europe. I even encountered myself.”
“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list”
“Two roads diverged in a wood and I, I took the one less traveled by”
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you have imagined.”
-Henry David Thoreau
“All we can do is travel hopefully”
-Lady Mary of Downton Abbey
“To travel is worth any cost or sacrifice.”
-Elizabeth Gilbert author of Eat, Pray, Love
“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”
“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilization, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.”
-Robert Louis Stevenson
“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.”
“Travel, in the younger sort, is a part of education; in the elder, a part of experience”
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the places and moments that take our breath away.”
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever”
“Once you stop learning, you start dying.”
“You cannot travel the path before you have become the path itself,”
“May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”
“The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power to tell just when the hands will stop, at late or early hour.
Now is the only time you own.
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in time.
For the clock may soon be still.”
-Robert H. Smith (1932-1982, died when he was 50 years old)
