  • The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land.
    G.K. Chesterton
    English writer
  • Once you have travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.
    Pat Conroy
    New York Times bestselling author
  • 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
    American author and humorist
