"In order to act you must be somewhat insane. A reasonably sensible man is satisfied with thinking." G. Clemenceau

"We need to travel. If we don't offer ourselves to the unknown, our senses dull. Our world becomes small and we lose our sense of wonder. Our eyes don't lift to the horizon. Our ears don't hear the sounds around us. The edge is off our experience & we pass our days in a routine that is both comfortable and limiting. We wake up one day and find we have lost our dreams in order to protect our days. Don't let yourself become one of these people!"

Kent Newburn (so I've been told)

Here goes...

"I wish the souls of my shoes worn thin from the following of my feet, to all of the beautiful places that I have only yet seen in my dreams." - Me

and my absolute favorite....

"Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pinetrees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves..." - Tolkien

here's a good one by T. S. Elliot...

We shall not cease from exploration... and the end of all our exploring, will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time...

It seems to trigger something in me and it just clicks...

I once saw a sign in Kemmerer, Wyoming that said:

"If you lived here you'd be home by now..."

Too often travel, instead of broadening the mind, merely lengthens the conversation. ~Elizabeth Drew

"The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson
