No man should travel until he has
learned the language of the country he visits.
Otherwise he voluntarily makes himself
a great baby-so helpless and so ridiculous.
?Ralph Waldo Emerson
I had always loved beautiful and
artistic things, though before
leaving America I had had a
very little chance of seeing any.
A journey is like marriage. The certain
way to be wrong is to think you control it.
A wise traveller never despises his own country.
A man travels the world over in search of
what he needs, and returns home to find it.
I should like to spend the whole of
my life in travelling abroad,
if I could anywhere borrow another
life to spend afterwards at home.
A traveler to distant places
should make no enemies.
One main factor in the upward trend of animal
life has been the power of wandering.
?Alfred North Whitehead
Everywhere is nowhere. When a
person spends all his time in
foreign travel, he ends by having
many acquaintances, but no friends.
To travel hopefully is a better
thing than to arrive.
?Robert Louis Stevenson
Everything in life is somewhere
else, and you get there in a car.
?Elwyn Brooks White
