Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.

It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.

I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And then when I do not succeed I get mad with anger.

Travel brings power and love back into your life.

We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.

Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.

Travel far enough, you meet yourself.

We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.

Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you've never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.

I think you travel to search and you come back home to find yourself there.

Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.

In books I have traveled, not only to other worlds, but into my own.

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.

Everything I was I carry with me, everything I will be lies waiting on the road ahead.

Wherever you go, you take yourself with you.

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.

The Silverado Squatters

Robert Louis Stevenson Lloyd Osbourne

The Silverado Squatters

We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered.


Kahlil Gibran


Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.

If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion, and avoid the people, you might better stay home.

Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.

See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask for no guarantees, ask for no security.

Fahrenheit 451

Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.

We may sit in our library and yet be in all quarters of the earth.

The journey itself is my home.

If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what you’re needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person.
