15 Favorite travel quotes

September 10, 2012

I am always inspired by lyrics and quotes, especially profound and slightly poetic ones that make you think. Since my mindset has been dominated by travel and trip planning for the past several months, I have come across some fantastic quotes that inspire me. These are some of my all-time favorite:

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

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” — Lao Tzu

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag

“A ship is safe in the harbor, but that’s not what ships are built for.” – Gael Attal

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” ― Dr. Seuss

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

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

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” — Henry David Thoreau

“If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” – Yogi Berra

“Oh, the places you’ll go!” – Dr. Seuss

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” – St. Augustine

    1. These are all wonderful and inspiring quotes. I grew up reading Dr Seuss and this quote is still my favourite: Oh, the places you’ll go!” – Dr. Seuss 🙂

      1. Couldn’t agree more! I have always been a Seuss kid and this one always spoke to me. Loudly. I even considered naming my blog that…but it was taken. 😉 Thanks for reading!

    1. I don’t have a favourite travel quote but I do have a few ‘mindset/lifestyle’ ones that I think of time and time again. A good inspirational quote always makes me feel better when stepping outside of my comfort zone
