Famous quotes containing the word travellers:

    Rosalind. Well, this is the forest of Arden.
    Touchstone. Ay, now am I in Arden, the more fool I.
    When I was at home, I was in a better place, but travellers must be content.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    We travellers are in very hard circumstances. If we say nothing but what has been said before us, we are dull and have observed nothing. If we tell anything new, we are laughed at as fabulous and romantic.
    Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (1689–1762)

    As it grew darker, I was startled by the honking of geese flying low over the woods, like weary travellers getting in late from Southern lakes, and indulging at last in unrestrained complaint and mutual consolation. Standing at my door, I could hear the rush of their wings; when, driving toward my house, they suddenly spied my light, and with hushed clamor wheeled and settled in the pond. So I came in, and shut the door, and passed my first spring night in the woods.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
