Famous quotes containing the word travel:

    I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    I am reminded by my journey how exceedingly new this country still is. You have only to travel for a few days into the interior and back parts even of many of the old States, to come to that very America which the Northmen, and Cabot, and Gosnold, and Smith, and Raleigh visited.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I travel light; as light,
    That is, as a man can travel who will
    Still carry his body around because
    Of its sentimental value.
    Christopher Fry (b. 1907)
