Even as a child I knew I wanted to see the world.  (Who doesn’t, I guess.)  But I never knew how to make it an important goal.  I didn’t travel much growing up, so it just wasn’t in my frame of reference.  As an adult, I find that quotes about travel serve me as useful reminders of my goal to see the world.  Thought y’all might like them too.

These are some of my favorites.  If you have some I should add, please comment in the box below.

“To travel is worth any cost or sacrifice.”
~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
Augustine of Hippo

“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”
Aldous Huxley

“The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.”
G.K. Chesterton

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”
Gustave Flaubert

“Make voyages. Attempt them. There’s nothing else.”
Tennessee Williams

“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.”
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

“Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life”
~ Michael Palin

“Life is either a daring adventure, or it is nothing.”
~ Helen Keller

“The impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life. ”
Agnes Repplier

“But that’s the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don’t want to know what people are talking about. I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”
~ Bill Bryson
