Famous quotes containing the words travel and/or air:

    To get away from one’s working environment is, in a sense, to get away from one’s self; and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    At length, having come up fifty rods off, he uttered one of those prolonged howls, as if calling on the god of loons to aid him, and immediately there came a wind from the east and rippled the surface, and filled the whole air with misty rain, and I was impressed as if it were the prayer of the loon answered, and his god was angry with me; and so I left him disappearing far away on the tumultuous surface.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
