Travel

L.E. Landon:

Travel is as much a passion as ambition or love.

Ilka Chase:

To me travel is a triple delight:

anticipation, performance, and recollection.

Fanny Burney:

Traveling is the ruin of all happiness! There’s no looking at a building here after seeing Italy.

Freya Stark:

The true fruit of travel is perhaps the feeling of being nearly everywhere at home.

Eudora Welty:

Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it.

Storm Jameson:

I am never happier than when I am alone in a foreign city; it is as if I had become invisible.

Gertrude Diamant:

One should learn patience in a foreign land, forthis is the true measure of travel. If one does not suffer some frustration of the ordinary reflexes, how can one be sure one is really traveling?

Hannah Arendt:

Loving life is easy when you are abroad. Where no one knows you and you hold your life in your hands all alone, you are more master of yourself than at any other time.

Colette:

The true traveler is he who goes on foot, and even then, he sits down a lot of the time.

Helen Bevington:

I have learned this strange thing, too, about travel: one may return to a place and, quite unexpectedly, meet oneself still lingering there from the last time.

Agnes Repplier:

The impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life.

Adeline Ainsworth:

A trip is what you take when you can’t take any more of what you’ve been taking.

Agnes E. Benedict and Adele Franklin:

Trips do not end when you return home – usually this is the time when in a sense they really begin.

Isabella L. Bird:

Surely one advantage of traveling is that, while it removes much prejudice against foreigners and their customs, it intensifies tenfold one’s appreciation of the good at home.

Ilka Chase:

When traveling abroad if you see something you yearn for if you can afford it at all, buy it. If you don’t you’ll regret it all your life.
