A man should ever be ready booted to take his journey.
~ Michel Eyquem de Montaigne | ( French philosopher and essayist. ) | 1533-1592 | Traveling
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
A man who leaves home to mend himself and others is a philosopher; but he who goes from country to country, guided by the blind impulse of curiosity, is a vagabond.
~ Oliver Goldsmith | ( Irish writer ) | 1728-1774 | Traveling
quotes Division : Irish writers   
     
A route differs from a road not only because it is solely intended for vehicles, but also because it is merely a line that connects one point with another. A route has no meaning in itself; its meaning derives entirely from the two points that it connects. A road is a tribute to space. Every stretch of road has meaning in itself and invites us to stop. A route is the triumphant devaluation of space, which thanks to it has been reduced to a mere obstacle to human movement and a waste of time.
~ Milan Kundera | ( Czech writer. ) | 1929-? | Traveling

As the Spanish proverb says, ''He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies, must carry the wealth of the Indies with him.'' So it is in travelling; a man must carry knowledge with him, if he would bring home knowledge.
~ Samuel Johnson | ( British author. ) | 1709-1784 | Traveling
quotes Division : British Authors and Writers   
     
Behold then Septimus Dodge returning to Dodge-town victorious. Not crowned with laurel, it is true, but wreathed in lists of things he has seen and sucked dry. Seen and sucked dry, you know: Venus de Milo, the Rhine or the Coliseum: swallowed like so many clams, and left the shells.
~ D. H. Lawrence | (English writer. ) | 1885-1930 | Traveling
quotes Division : British Authors and Writers   
     
Comes over one an absolute necessity to move. And what is more, to move in some particular direction. A double necessity then: to get on the move, and to know whither.
~ D. H. Lawrence | (English writer. ) | 1885-1930 | Traveling
quotes Division : British Authors and Writers   
     
Every perfect traveler always creates the country where he travels.

quotes Division : Novelists   
     
For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilization, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.
~ Robert Louis Stevenson | ( Scottish essayist, poet and novelist. ) | 1850-1895 | Traveling
quotes Division : Essayists   
     
He travels best that knows when to return. Middleton 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 | ( Scottish essayist, poet and novelist. ) | 1850-1895 | Traveling
quotes Division : Essayists   
     
He who is only a traveler learns things at second-hand and by the halves, and is poor authority. We are most interested when science reports what those men already know practically or instinctively, for that alone is a true humanity, or account of human experience.
~ Henry David Thoreau | ( American naturalist ) | 1817-1862 | Traveling
quotes Division : Naturalists   
     
I am not much an advocate for traveling, and I observe that men run away to other countries because they are not good in their own, and run back to their own because they pass for nothing in the new places. For the most part, only the light characters travel. Who are you that have no task to keep you at home?
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson | ( U.S. poet ) | 1803-1882 | Traveling
quotes Division : American poets   
     
I am so convinced of the advantages of looking at mankind instead of reading about them, and of the bitter effects of staying at home with all the narrow prejudices of an Islander, that I think there should be a law amongst us to set our young men abroad for a term among the few allies our wars have left us.
~ Lord Byron | ( British poet. ) | 1788-1824 | Traveling
quotes Division : British Poets   
     
I have found out that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.
~ Mark Twain | (American Humorist and Educator ) | 1835 - 1910 | Traveling
quotes Division : Humorists and Comedians   
     
I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read on the train.
~ Oscar Wilde | ( Irish poet and dramatist. ) | 1854-1900 | Traveling
quotes Division : Dramatists   
     
I suppose the only real reason for travelling is to learn that all people are the same.
-: [ One Hand Clapping (1961) ]
~ Anthony Burgess | ( English author. ) | 1917-1933 | Traveling
quotes Division : British Authors and Writers   
     
I swims in the Tagus all across at once, and I rides on an ass or a mule, and swears Portuguese, and have got a diarrhea and bites from the mosquitoes. But what of that? Comfort must not be expected by folks that go a pleasuring.
~ Lord Byron | ( British poet. ) | 1788-1824 | Traveling
quotes Division : British Poets   
     
I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

quotes Division : Essayists   
     
I traveled among unknown men, in lands beyond the sea; nor England! did I know till then what love I bore to thee.
~ William Wordsworth | ( English Romantic poet. ) | 1770-1850 | Traveling
quotes Division : British Poets   
     
I was disappointed in Niagara -- most people must be disappointed in Niagara. Every American bride is taken there, and the sight of the stupendous waterfall must be one of the earliest, if not the keenest, disappointments in American married life.
~ Oscar Wilde | ( Irish poet and dramatist. ) | 1854-1900 | Traveling
quotes Division : Dramatists
