Wanderlust Wednesday- Quotes that Inspire Travel: Part 10

This week’s Wanderlust Wednesday post is quotes again, but since I’ve been winding down mid-terms this week I thought I’d do quotes with an education theme- Travel as a form of education.  It’s something that I completely believe to be true- that we learn a lot about others and ourselves while traveling.  So, here are some words of wisdom:



“If you’re 22, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel- as far and as widely as possible.  Sleep on floors if you have to.  Find out how other people live and eat and cook.  Learn from them- wherever you go.”

-Anthony Bourdain-


“Experience, travel- these are an education in themselves.”



“We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of the wilderness and travel and explore and tell the world the glories of your journey.”

-John Hope Franklin-


“Exploration is the physical expression of the intellectual passion.  And I tell you, if you have the desire for knowledge and the power to give it physical expression, go out and explore.  If you are a brave man you will do nothing; if you are fearful you may do much, for none but cowards have need to prove their bravery.  Some will tell you that you are mad, and nearly all will say, ‘what’s the use?’  For we are a nation of shopkeepers, and no shopkeeper will look at research which does not promise him a financial return within a year.  And so you will sledge nearly alone, but those with whom you sledge will not be shopkeepers: that is worth a good deal.”

-Apsley Cherry-Garrard- 


“Modern education ignores the need for solitude: hence the decline in religion, in poetry, in all the deeper affections of the spirit: a disease to be doing something always, as if one oculd never sit quietly and let the puppet show unroll itself before one; an inablilty to lose oneself in mystery and wonder while, like a wave lifting us into new seas, the history of the world develops around us.”

-Freya Stark-


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

-Eudora Welty-


“People who don’t travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what’s in front of them.  Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live.”

-Martin Yan-
