Not so many years ago there was no simpler or more intelligible notion than that of going on a journey. Travel --movement through space --provided the universal metaphor for change. One of the subtle confusions --perhaps one of the secret terrors --of modern life is that we have lost this refuge. No longer do we move through space as we once did. - Daniel J. Boorstin

Traveling, you realize that differences are lost: each city takes to resembling all cities, places exchange their form, order, distances, a shapeless dust cloud invades the continents. - Italo Calvino

When one realizes that his life is worthless he either commits suicide or travels. - Edward Dahlberg

Tourism, human circulation considered as consumption is fundamentally nothing more than the leisure of going to see what has become banal. - Guy Debord

Journeys, like artists, are born and not made. A thousand differing circumstances contribute to them, few of them willed or determined by the will --whatever we may think. - Lawrence Durrell

Travel makes a wise man better, and a fool worse - Thomas Fuller

Traveling is like gambling: it is always connected with winning and losing, and generally where it is least expected we receive, more or less than what we hoped for. - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The important thing about travel in foreign lands is that it breaks the speech habits and makes you blab less, and breaks the habitual space-feeling because of different village plans and different landscapes. It is less important that there are different mores, for you counteract these with your own reaction-formations. - Paul Goodman

They change their climate, not their soul, who rush across the sea. - Horace

Being on tour sends me crazy, I drink too much and out comes the John Mcenroe in me. - Chrissie Hynde

He that travels in theory has no inconveniences; he has shade and sunshine at his disposal, and wherever he alights finds tables of plenty and looks of gaiety. These ideas are indulged till the day of departure arrives, the chaise is called, and the progress of happiness begins. A few miles teach him the fallacies of imagination. The road is dusty, the air is sultry, the horses are sluggish. He longs for the time of dinner that he may eat and rest. The inn is crowded, his orders are neglected, and nothing remains but that he devour in haste what the cook has spoiled, and drive on in quest of better entertainment. He finds at night a more commodious house, but the best is always worse than he expected. - Samuel Johnson

If you look like your passport picture you're too ill to travel. - Will Kommen

Comes over one an absolute necessity to move. And what is more, to move in some particular direction. A double necessity then: to get on the move, and to know whither. - D. H. Lawrence

Traveling is not just seeing the new; it is also leaving behind. Not just opening doors; also closing them behind you, never to return. But the place you have left forever is always there for you to see whenever you shut your eyes. - Jan Myrdal

Most travel is best of all in the anticipation or the remembering; the reality has more to do with losing your luggage. - Regina Nadelson

Life, as the most ancient of all metaphors insists, is a journey; and the travel book, in its deceptive simulation of the journey's fits and starts, rehearses life's own fragmentation. More even than the novel, it embraces the contingency of things. - Jonathan Raban

In the middle ages people were tourists because of their religion, whereas now they are tourists because tourism is their religion. - Robert Runcie

Journeys end in lovers meeting. - William Shakespeare

An involuntary return to the point of departure is, without doubt, the most disturbing of all journeys. - Iain Sinclair

When I was very young and the urge to be someplace was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would cure this itch. When years described me as mature, the remedy prescribed was middle age. In middle age I was assured that greater age would calm my fever and now that I am fifty-eight perhaps senility will do the job. Nothing has worked. In other words, I don't improve, in further words, once a bum always a bum. I fear the disease is incurable. - John Steinbeck

To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive, and the true success is to labor. - Robert Louis Stevenson
