A traveler without observation is a bird without wings

“A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.”

Moslih Eddin Saadi

One’s destination is never a place

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”

Henry Miller

Traveling is a brutality

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”

Cesare Pavese

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go

“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

All travel has its advantages

“All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.”

Samuel Johnson
