BC: “We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru | “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard | “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralph Waldo Emerson | “A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.” – Tim Cahill | “The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson | “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain
FC: My International Travels | “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” St. Augustine | “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain | “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” – Martin Buber | “Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by.” – Robert Frost | “Too often travel, instead of broadening the mind, merely lengthens the conversation.” – Elizabeth Drew | “Not all those who wander are lost.” – J. R. R. Tolkien | “If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” – James Michener | “Tourists don't know where they've been, travelers don't know where they're going.” – Paul Theroux
