a few short quotes i liked


I thought someone might enjoy these as much as i did
please feel free to add some of your own i'd love to read them

Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world. -- Gustave Flaubert

The quieter you travel, the farther you'll get.-- Russian Proverb

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.-- George Bernard Shaw

The longing for paradise is paradise itself. -- Kahlil Gibran

It is not down in any map; true places never are.-- Herman Melville

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. -- Robert Louis Stevenson

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.-- Susan Sontag
 

"Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time."

"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."-Bill Bryson

And my favorite quote:
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." -Helen Keller

Thanks for posting those great quotes.  I really enjoy reading them, too.  It makes me feel like I'm worldly wise as I plan the next journey in our little van.  One more that I found (and have shared with my husband, too):

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it. by John Steinbeck
