Travel quotes
There is a cheap literature that speaks to us of the need of escape. It is true that when we travel we are in search of distance. But distance is not to be found. It melts away. And escape has never led anywhere. The moment a man finds that he must play the races, go the Arctic, or make war in order to feel himself alive, that man has begin to spin the strands that bind him to other men and to the world. But what wretched strands! A civilization that is really strong fills man to the brim, though he never stir. What are we worth when motionless, is the question.

- Saint-Exupery, Antoine De
America -- rather, the United States -- seems to me to be the Jew among the nations. It is resourceful, adaptable, maligned, envied, feared, imposed upon. It is warm-hearted, over-friendly; quick-witted, lavish, colorful; given to extravagant speech and gestures; its people are travelers and wanderers by nature, moving, shifting, restless; swarming in Fords, in ocean liners; craving entertainment; volatile. The chuckle among the nations of the world.

- Ferber, Edna
The hotel was once where things coalesced, where you could meet both townspeople and travelers. Not so in a motel. No matter how you build it, the motel remains the haunt of the quick and dirty, where the only locals are Chamber of Commerce boys every fourth Thursday. Who ever heard the returning traveler exclaim over one of the great motels of the world he stayed in? Motels can be big, but never grand.

- Trogdon, William
Old men and far travelers may lie with authority.

Nothing is more active than thought, for it travels over the universe, and nothing is stronger than necessity for all must submit to it.

- Thales of Miletus
As for pictures and museums, that don't trouble me. The worst of going abroad is that you've always got to look at things of that sort. To have to do it at home would be beyond a joke.

- Oliphant, Margaret
A solitary traveler can sleep from state to state, from day to night, from day to day, in the long womb of its controlled interior. It is the cradle that never stops rocking after the lullaby is over. It is the biggest sleeping tablet in the world, and no one need ever swallow the pill, for it swallows them.

- Teran, Lisa St. Aubin De
To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.

- Huxley, Aldous
Man is an artifact designed for space travel. He is not designed to remain in his present biologic state any more than a tadpole is designed to remain a tadpole.

- Burroughs, William S.
He who would travel happily must travel light.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Writing and travel broaden your ass if not your mind and I like to write standing up.

- Hemingway, Ernest
Traveling is the ruin of all happiness! There's no looking at a building after seeing Italy.

- Fanny Burney
Every year it takes less time to fly across the Atlantic and more time to drive to the office.

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.

- Twain, Mark
No one travelling on a business trip would be missed if he failed to arrive.

- Thorstein Veblen
Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.

- Alexander Solzhenitsyn
It is impossible to travel faster than the speed of light, and certainly not desirable, as one's hat keeps blowing off.

- Woody Allen
Hope is the last thing that dies in man; and though it be exceedingly deceitful, yet it is of this good use to us, that while we are traveling through life it conducts us in an easier and more pleasant way to our journey's end.

- Francois De La Rochefoucauld
There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that ;it is often a comfort to shift one's position, and be bruised in a new place.

- Irving, Washington
I don't travel in circles where people say,'I have faith, I believe this in my heart and nothing you can say or do can shake my faith.'That's just a long-winded religious way to say,'Shut up.'

- Penn Jillette
