"Too often travel, instead of broadening the mind, merely lengthens the conversation."
"When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money."
"I think that travel comes from some deep urge to see the world, like the urge that brings up a worm in an Irish bog to see the moon when it is full"
"The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land."
"A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it."
