Travel Broadens the Mind

TRAVEL – Broadens the mind and hardens the body and spirit.

  1. Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends. —Maya Angelou
  2. 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 civilisation, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints. —Robert Louis Stevenson
  3. Your true traveller finds boredom rather agreeable than painful. It is the symbol of his liberty – his excessive freedom. He accepts his boredom, when it comes, not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure. —Aldous Huxley
  4. As the traveler who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep, so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily, to appreciate more lovingly, our own. —Margaret Mead
  5. The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes “sight-seeing.” —Daniel J. Boorstin
  6. It is not down in any map; true places never are. —Herman Melville
  7. Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness. —Ray Bradbury
  8. 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
  9. If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home. —James Michener
  10. I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine. —Caskie Stinnett
  11. To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries. —Aldous Huxley
  12. We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls. —Anais Nin
  13. The journey is difficult, immense. We will travel as far as we can, but we cannot in one lifetime see all that we would like to see or to learn all that we hunger to know. —Loren Eiseley
  14. If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, un-forgiveness, selfishness, and fears. —Glenn Clark
  15. Travel gives me the opportunity to walk through the sectors of cities where one can clearly see the passage of time. —Jerzy Kosinski
  16. We travel to learn; and I have never been in any country where they did not do something better than we do it, think some thoughts better than we think, catch some inspiration from heights above our own. —Maria Mitchell
