Famous quotes containing the word travel:

    When you travel to the Celestial City, carry no letter of introduction. When you knock, ask to see God,—none of the servants.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilisation, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    Ktaadn ... is an Indian word signifying highest land,... very few, even among backwoodsmen and hunters, have ever climbed it, and it will be a long time before the tide of fashionable travel sets that way.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
