The Quotable Traveler

It is summer which is the traditional travel time for most Americans and Europeans. To help you get in a traveling mood, or even get started on the road to travel adventure, I have put together a few of my favorite travel quotes. I hope your summer is as much fun as mine.

“Traveling — it gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land.”   — Ibn Battuta

“The border means more than a customs house, a passport officer, a man with a gun. Over there everything is going to be different; life is never going to be quite the same again after your passport has been stamped.”   — Graham Greene

“It’s a magical world, Hobbes, ol’ buddy… Let’s go exploring!” — Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”   — Susan Sontag

“People forget years and remember moments.”   — Ann Beattie

“You have to taste a culture to understand it.” -Deborah Cater

“I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.” -Mary Anne

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

“Adventure is worthwhile in itself.” – Amelia Earhart

“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

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a ride!’” – Hunter S. Thompson

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” – Confucius
