This has been my best travel quote, which I have used often with my best travel friend, Mike, as we have traveled around the world. He is also a small town guy, from Los Banos, CA. I grew up in Kingsburg, CA, then a small mostly Swedish-American hamlet of 3,000 people. Here is the quote: "Not too bad for a couple of simple farm boys from the country......." But this is a close second, in one of my favorite songs, "The Boxer' by Paul Simon:
Now the years are rolling by me
They are rocking evenly
And I am older than I once was
And younger than I'll be
But that's not unusual
No, it isn't strange
After changes upon changes We are more or less the same
After changes we are
More or less the same.
"Every exit is an entry somewhere else" - Tom Stoppard "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." - J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter)
"From all over the world, people continue to bring all their questions about the life and
work of Vincent van Gogh to our museum. That's hugely inspiring." - Axel Ruger, director, van Gogh Museum "It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then" - Lewis Carroll (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) This is quite a revelation: "I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life-and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do." - Georgia O'Keefe "There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars" - Jack Kerouac "Travel is fatal to prejudice" - Mark Twain "Nowhere, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. One person's Nowhere is another person's Everywhere. The most unimaginable outpost is someone's everyday world - and means the world to that person." - Don George "Traveling - it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller" - Ibn Battuta "I am not a great book, I am not a great artist, but I love art and I love food, so I am the perfect traveller." - Michael Palin "The
best journeys in life are those that answer questions you never thought to ask." ― Rich Ridgeway "Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living." - Miriam Beard "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 "Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else." - Lawrence Block "The life you have led doesn't need to be the only life you have" - Anna Quindlen "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space." ― Unknown (I really like this!!!!) "A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." - Oliver Wendell Holmes
