I'm looking for inspiring travel quotes.
I'm not entirely sure it is an appropriate travel question according to the FAQ, but when you ask non-travelers for travel quotes, usually the term 'travel' is interpeted in such a broad way, that the list becomes cluttered with (in my opinion) non-related quotes. Therefore I decided to ask the question anyway.

I've included a list of common travel quotes I've already collected:

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
~ Confucius

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.
~ Susan Sontag

I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine.
~ Caskie Stinnett

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

It is better to travel one mile than to read a thousand books.
~ Confucius

It is not down in any map; true places never are.
~ Herman Melville

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have
~ Benjamin Disraeli

Some parts of the world you make a conscious effort to visit and others have to wait until
fate delivers you there.
~ Tony Hawks

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~ St. Augustine

    +1 but as it stands I agree with you that in its current form it isn't an appropriate question. I would rephrase the question to be more specific. Something like "is there a wiki capturing travel related quotes?" – user141 Jan 26 '13 at 13:40

    I would appriciate it the downvoters would, in accordance with the etiquette, at least leave a comment. – Jacco Jan 26 '13 at 19:01
  • If travel.SE has an equiavlent "cousin site" like programmers.SE is for stackoverflow, I would think this might be on-topic there, but we have no such site so the chat room is probably the best place for now .... – hippietrail Jan 27 '13 at 6:23

Did you already consult travel quotes on Wikiquote

  • I didn't know the list, and while intersting, I'm also surprised: only 1 of the (well known) quotes listed in my question is mentioned there. – Jacco Jan 26 '13 at 17:03

    The success behind any wiki is that you add your missing quotes ;) – user141 Jan 26 '13 at 18:13
  • I long ago stopped editing on wikipedia and related websites. – Jacco Jan 26 '13 at 18:56
