Travel Quotes

A few of our favorite inspirational travel quotes:

“I’m in love with places I’ve never been and people I’ve never met.”  – John Green

“Health and youthful exuberance are often people’s most unappreciated resources. Anyone with a bank account understands the discount value of time, yet I cannot recall a single instance of anyone applying a discount factor to their own intangible assets.  Why is it that people can understand that $100 now is worth a lot more than $100 in the future, but fail to recognize that our personal health and other qualities such as desire for adventure, spontaneity, and passion for trying new things are potentially worth infinitely more now than they might be 10 years in the future.”  – Trevor Seret, a good friend and wise man

“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.”  – Dalai Lama

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”  – Terry Pratchett

“If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space.” – Unknown

“Because it is there.” – Mountaineer George Mallory, in response to repeated questions about why he was so interested in climbing Mt. Everest
