Famous quotes containing the word travel:

    For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilisation, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    Man lording it over man, man kneeling to man, is a spectacle that Gabriel might well travel hitherward to behold; for never did he behold it in heaven.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Some people swallow the universe like a pill; they travel on through the world, like smiling images pushed from behind.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
