Travel Quotes

You'll never reach the end of the road while you're traveling with me.
- Crowded House

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.
- Walt Whitman, Song of the Open Road

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
- Robert Louis Stevenson, The Silverado Squatters

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
- Benjamin Disraeli

Aquel que quiere viajar felizmente debe viajar ligero.
- Antoine de Saint Exupéry
