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 traveler without observation is a bird without wings.
– Moslih Eddin Saadi
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began,
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
– Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien
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
Earth’s crammed with heaven.
– Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The world is a book and those who
do not travel read only one page.
– St. Augustine
Go far. Stay long. See deep.
And may the sun rise twice before you sleep.
Bizarre travel plans are dancing lessons from God.
– Kurt Vonnegut
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.
– Mark Jenkins
