Famous quotes containing the word travel:

    Vices may be said to await us along the course of our lives like hosts with whom we lodge successively on a journey; and I doubt that experience would cause us to avoid them, if we could travel the same road twice.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Good news about someone never gets past the door, but bad news will travel a thousand leagues away.
    Chinese proverb.

    In sci-fi convention, life-forms that hadn’t developed space travel were mere prehistory—horse-shoe crabs of the cosmic scene—and something of the humiliation of being stuck on a provincial planet in a galactic backwater has stayed with me ever since.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
