Traveler Quotations

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
Lao Tzu

All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
Martin Buber

The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight-seeing.'
Daniel J. Boorstin

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!
Charles Dickens
