Need a motivational quote to start planning your next great adventure? Read what famous travellers present and past had to say on the subject.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
A man of ordinary talent will always be ordinary, whether he travels or not; but a man of superior talent will go to pieces if he remains forever in the same place.
Once you have travelled, 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.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.
A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.
To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.
Lisa St. Aubin de Teran
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 travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted my routine.
The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at least to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.
We live in a world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.
