Thursday #ThoughtsOnAPostcard Round-up no.3
If you’ve ‘liked’ The Well-Travelled Postcard’s Facebook Page, then you may have seen my #ThoughtsOnAPostcard series that I’ve been posting once a week, on a Thursday, on Facebook. On the back of a postcard I’ve been posting some of my favourite travel quotes, some of the quotes that inspire me the most. I did a round-up of the first 10, and then of the next 10, and here’s round-up no.3! Which is your favourite travel quote?
“All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.” – Paul Fussell
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” – Ernest Hemingway
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” – Nelson Mandela
“All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.” – Samuel Johnson
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru
“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson
“What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do – especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.” – William Least Heat Moon
“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.” – Aldous Huxley
“Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art.” – Freya Stark
