“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J. R. R. Tolkien

Inspired by the book I was reading today. This first quote sent me out to collect others that I enjoyed.

“Travel is the great leveler, the great teacher, bitter as medicine, crueler than mirror-glass. A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet introspection.”
-Patrick, Rothfuss.

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

“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

“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

“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by.” – Robert Frost

“The journey not the arrival matters.” – T. S. Eliot

“What does it mean to pre-board? Do you get on before you get on?” –
George Carlin

“The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.” – Rudyard Kipling

“Travel is glamorous only in retrospect.” – Paul Theroux

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for” – John A. Shedd

“Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness.” – Ray Bradbury

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller
