Through just a simple Google search for “wanderlust quotes” I found so many pieces that capture my intense desire to discover the world, its people, its beauty and so on.
These quotes aren’t in any particular order, although some certainly speak to me more than others.
“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” ― Unknown
“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” ― Dalai Lama
“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.” ― Pico Iyer
“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but, by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” ― Maya Angelou
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” Marcel Proust
“because he had no place he could stay in without getting tired of it and because there was nowhere to go but everywhere, keep rolling under the stars…” ― Jack Kerouac
“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” Robert Louis Stevenson
