Some Soulful Travel Quotes

After Some Soulful Writing Quotes, I give you this collection of travel quotes. Those also resonate with me since I had moved twice in the last four years and consider myself in a constant state of travel. Some Soulful Artists Quotes then followed in the series.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
― Augustine of Hippo

“Travel brings power and love back into your life.”
― Rumi

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

“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.”
― Khalil Gibran

“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.”
― Lao Tzu

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
― Mark Twain

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.”
― Anaïs Nin

“A great way to learn about your country is to leave it.”
― Henry Rollins

“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less travelled by.”
― Robert Frost

“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.”
― Jack Kerouac

“To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.”
― Freya Stark

“Most people who hold that childish kind of love for their country have never left it.”
― Omar Cherif

“Your true traveller finds boredom rather agreeable than painful. It is the symbol of his liberty―his excessive freedom. He accepts his boredom, when it comes, not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure.”
― Aldous Huxley

“Travelling ―it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
― Ibn Battuta

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”
― Gustave Flaubert

“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.”
― Robert Louis Stevenson

“If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, 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

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“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 harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
― Mark Twain

“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”
― Aldous Huxley

“Not all those who wander are lost.”
― J. R. R. Tolkien
