Travel Quotes

Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.
                  Alexander Solzhenitsyn

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.


Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. Miriam Beard

Before he sets out, the traveler must possess fixed interests and facilities to be served by travel.

George Santayana

Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip's bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat's back I do fly
After summer merrily.
Merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.

William Shakespeare
He who would travel happily must travel light.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery
When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable.

It is designed to make its own people comfortable.

Clifton Fadiman

Mountains inspire awe in any human person who has a soul. They remind us of our frailty, our unimportance, of the briefness of our span upon this earth. They touch the heavens, and sail serenely at an altitude beyond even the imaginings of a mere mortal.

Elizabeth Aston

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
Joyce Kilmer

You will find something more in woods than in books.

Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.

Saint Bernard
