He who would travel happily must travel light.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The service we render to others is really the rent we pay for our room on this earth. It is obvious that man is himself a traveler; that the purpose of this world is not 'to have and to hold' but 'to give and serve.

Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell

A traveler in ancient Greece, the story goes, met an old man walking along the road and asked him how to get to Mount Olympus. The old man, who turned out to be Socrates, replied: "Just make sure that every step you take is in that direction."

A traveler crossed a frozen stream
in trembling fear one day;
Later another drove across,
and whistled all the way.
Great and little faith alike
were granted safe convoy;
One had pangs of needless fear,
the other all the joy.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The only thing that you can carry with you on your travels is your heart. Fill your heart with good things and good things will follow you for the rest of your life.

Scott Murray

People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.

St. Augustine

If God had answered all of my prayers
I'd be traveling the world on my own private yacht
Involved in several romantic affairs
With women whose beauty I longingly sought.

If God had answered all of my prayers
I'd have fame and fortune and beautiful weather
I'd sail along the coast of Spain
And if inclined, stay there forever.

But if God had answered all of my prayers
There I'd be, a millionaire
Beneath the sun a world away
From where I met you that rainy day.

Ron Atchison

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.

Lao Tzu

A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.

"I've been thinking," he said, "I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone."
