"Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road. Healthy, free, the world before me.--Walt Whitman, Songs for the Open Road: Poems of Travel and Adventure
The long brown path before me leading me wherever I choose. Henceforth, I ask not good fortune, I myself am good fortune.
Henceforth, I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing."
"...I hope that you will possess yourselves of money enough to travel and to idle, to contemplate the future or the past of the world, to dream over books and loiter at street corners and let the line of thought dip deep into the stream"--Virginia Woolf
"We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity."--Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
"We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered."--Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
"The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see."--G.K. Chesterton
"Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.You must travel it by yourself.It is not far. It is within reach.Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land."--Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
"Travel brings power and love back into your life."--Rumi Jalalud-Din
"Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you've never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground."--Judith Thurman
"What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."--Jack Kerouac, On The Road
“That’s the place to get to—nowhere. One wants to wander away from the world’s somewheres, into our own nowhere.”--D.H. Lawrence, Women in Love
