Wanderlust Wednesday- Quotes That Inspire Travel- Part 13

This week’s Wanderlust Wednesday is another ‘Quotes that Inspire Travel’ post.  I never get tired of discovering these quotes and I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do.




“The highway sets the traveler’s stage.”

-The Avett Brothers lyrics from I and Love and You


“Perhaps the logical question to ask at this point is: Why go?  The answer is that when a man has been there and undergone the baptism of solitude he can’t help himself.  Once he has been under the spell of the vast, luminous, silent country, no ohter place is quite strong enough for him, no other surroundings can provide the supremely satisfying sensation of existing in teh midst of something that it absolute.  He will go back, whatever the cost in comfort and money, for the absolute has no price.”

-Paul Bowles-


“Each time I go to a place I have not seen before I hope it will be as different as possible from the places I already know.  I assume it is natural for a traveler to seek diversity, and that it is the human element that makes him most aware of difference.  If people and their manner of living were alike everywhere, there would not be much point in moving from one place to another.”

-Paul Bowles-


” can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of child-like wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.”

-Bill Bryson-


“What gives value to travel is fear.  It is the fact that at a certain moments, when we are so far from our own country… We are seized by a vague fear and the instinctive desire to go back to the protection of old habits.  This is the most obvious benefit of travel.  At that moment we are feverish but also porous, so that the slightest touch makes us quiver to the depths of our being.  We came across a cascade of light, and there is eternity.  This is why we should not say that we travel for pleasure.  There is no pleasure in traveling.”

-Albert Camus-


“I was never a big fan of people who don’t leave home.  I don’t know why.  It just seems part of your duty in life.”

-Joan Didion-


“He who is outside his door already has the hardest part of his journey behind him.”

-Dutch Proverb-


“The best kind of travel- the kind I wanted to experience- involves a particular state of mind, in which one is not merely open to the occurrence of the unexpected, but to deep involvement in the unexpected, indeed, open to the possibility of having one’s life changed forever by a change encounter.”

-Elizabeth Eaves-


“When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable.  It is designed to make its own people comfortable.”

-Clifton Fadiman-


“Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”

-Gustave Flaubert-
