Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
He who does not travel does not know the value of men.
If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel–as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them–wherever you go.
Once a year go somewhere you have never been before.
Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled.
The world is a book and he who doesn’t travel only reads one page.
A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
To travel is to take a journey into yourself.
To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.
–Ben Stiller in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
