Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comforts of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things. - air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky. - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.
- Cesare Pavese
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
And then there is the most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.
- Randy Komisar
I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.
- Mark Twain
Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.
- Jack Kerouac
