Chronic Quotes

My favorite inspirational travel quotes… hopefully you too will find inspiration to travel.

Mark Twain on a river-boat

“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.”

“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.”

~Mark Twain

Euripides

“Experience, travel- these are as education in themselves”.

~Euripides

John Hope Franklin

“We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of the wilderness and travel and explore and tell the world the glories of our journey”.

~John Hope Franklin

Maya Angelou

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends”.

~Maya Angelou

Aldous Huxley

“Your true traveler finds boredom rather agreeable than painful.
It is the symbol of his liberty- his excessive freedom.
He accepts his boredom, when it comes,
not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure”.

“Your true traveler finds boredom rather agreeable than painful. It is the symbol of his liberty — his excessive freedom. He accepts his boredom, when it comes, not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure.”

~Aldous Huxley

Robert Louis Stevenson

“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.  I travel for travel’s sake.  The great affair is to move”.

~Robert Louis Stevenson

Anatole France

“Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe”.

~Anatole France

Seneca

“Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind”.

~Seneca

Ray Bradbury

“Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness”.

~Ray Bradbury
