Tourist

Famous quotes containing the word tourist:

    The tourist who moves about to see and hear and open himself to all the influences of the places which condense centuries of human greatness is only a man in search of excellence.
    Max Lerner (b. 1902)

    There is a mystery that floats between
    The tourist and the town. Imagination
    Estranges it from her. She need not suffer
    Or die here. It is none of her affair,
    Its calm heroic vistas make no claim.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The modern American tourist now fills his experience with pseudo-events. He has come to expect both more strangeness and more familiarity than the world naturally offers. He has come to believe that he can have a lifetime of adventure in two weeks and all the thrills of risking his life without any real risk at all.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
