Clever quips

Quotes about travel tend to be contrived, romanticized, or faux-philosophical. And they usually look something like this:

That being said, I still enjoy them. It’s important to me to keep them in the back of my mind before embarking on any new adventure. These are the three I have posted in my office:

The classic (see above):

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine

The slightly snarky:

“If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. It’s a plus for everybody. Open your mind. Get up off the couch. Move.” – Anthony Bourdain

And finally, the inspirational:

“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.” – Jawaharlal Nehru
