Since I have a few months before my big trip to Argentina, I’ve been finding solace in looking at gorgeous travel photos and inspiring quotes to post around my house. My wanderlust has reached a fever pitch now that I’m not in the office. Keeping little notes and pictures around the house (even though I’m moving), helps to keep me motivated and focused on the big picture. Sometimes, I lose sight of what is important and a beautiful picture or quote is just the thing to snap me back to reality.
“I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.” Oscar Wilde
“Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey.” Fitzhugh Mullan
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” Saint Augustine
“I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.” Mary Anne Radmacher Hershey
“When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.” Susan Heller
“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
“Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.” Frank Herbert
“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.” Jawaharial Nehru
“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by.” – Robert Frost
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things 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.” Mark Twain
This was the quote that helped me make the decision to leave my soul sucking job and focus on what truly makes me happy. I couldn’t imagine myself a few years down the line still so miserable. So, thanks Mark Twain. You’re awesome.
