Edward Abbey – The longest journey begins with. . .

Share this quote:
Edward AbbeyThe longest journey begins with a single step, not with the turn of an ignition key. That’s the best thing about walking, the journey itself. It doesn’t much matter whether you get where you’re going or not. You’ll get there anyway. Every good hike brings you eventually back home. Right where you started.

Edward Abbey   (1927-1989)

Ralph Waldo Emerson – Not much an advocate for traveling

Share this quote:
Ralph Waldo EmersonI am not much an advocate for traveling, and I observe that men run away to other countries because they are not good in their own, and run back to their own because they pass for nothing in the new places. For the most part, only the light characters travel. Who are you that have no task to keep you at home? I have been quoted as saying captious things about travel; but I mean to do justice. …. He that does not fill a place at home, cannot abroad. He only goes there to hide his insignificance in a larger crowd.

Ralph Waldo Emerson   (1803-1882)
