Friday Five

Five Travel Quotes- I just got back from vacation and these are the kind of thoughts I need to read after the exhausting bus rides and general travel issues in Thailand.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
-Mark Twain (Favorite)

“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 (When I walk the streets of a new city)

“Not all those who wander are lost.”
– J. R. R. Tolkien (When I think of RF)

“Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.”
– Alan Keightley (When I feel the pressure to accomplish the ‘American Dream’)

“You are constantly off-balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” -Cesare Pavese (When I realize I don’t need to collect things)
