A man should ever be ready booted to take his journey.
A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.
Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.
I have found out that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.
Every year it takes less time to fly across the Atlantic and more time to drive to the office.
To simplify complications is the first essential of success.
It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.
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.
Give us the luxuries of life, and we will dispense with its necessaries.
Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.
Not all who wander are lost
The end is never as satisfying as the journey. To have achieved everything but to have done so without integrity and excitement is to have achieved nothing.
Freedom is a condition of mind, and the best way to secure it is to breed it.
If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.
The tourist who moves about to see and hear and open himself to all the influences of the places which condense centuries of human greatness is only a man in search of excellence.
Of journeying the benefits are many: the freshness it bringeth to the heart, the seeing and hearing of marvelous things, the delight of beholding new cities, the meeting of unknown friends, and the learning of high manners.
He who would travel happily must travel light
If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.
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.
We must travel in the direction of our fear.
To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.
The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist see what he has come to see.
The more I traveled the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.
Two roads diverge in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
I am leaving the town to the invaders: increasingly numerous, mediocre, dirty, badly behaved, shameless tourists.
The modern American tourist now fills his experience with pseudo-events. He has come to expect both more strangeness and more familiarity than the world naturally offers. He has come to believe that he can have a lifetime of adventure in two weeks and all the thrills of risking his life without any real risk at all.
I swims in the Tagus all across at once, and I rides on an ass or a mule, and swears Portuguese, and have got a diarrhea and bites from the mosquitoes. But what of that? Comfort must not be expected by folks that go a pleasuring.
No man should travel until he has learned the language of the country he visits. Otherwise he voluntarily makes himself a great baby-so helpless and so ridiculous.
If some people didn't tell you, you'd never know they'd been away on a vacation.
