How inspired travel has changed the world and what else needs to be done....

"Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how far you have traveled."
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." 
St. Augustine
"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
"Hitler didn't travel. Stalin didn't travel. Saddam Hussein never traveled. They didn't want to have their orthodoxy challenged."
Howard Gardner
"He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind."
Leonardo da Vinci 
"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 
"To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries."
Aldous Huxley
"The traveler sees what he sees; the tourist sees what he has come to see."
Gilbert K. Chesterton
"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible."
T.E. Lawrence - Ten Pillars of Wisdom
"The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight-seeing.'"
Daniel J. Boorstin
"What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do - especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road."
William Least Heat Moon, Blue Highways
"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open." 
Jawaharal Nehru
The best thing about travel? 
No television but your imagination.
The worst?
"You can be everywhere but nowhere," as the rabbi of a friend once said.
Fortune Favors the Bold

"f you are everywhere, you are nowhere."

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Mark Twain
