“This wasn’t a strange place; it was a new one.” – Paulo Coelho
Jobs fill your pocket, but adventures fill your soul.
“But that’s the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don’t want to know what people are talking about. I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.”
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
Remember that happiness is a way of travel – not a destination.
“When in doubt, choose to live.”
“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on earth, then I ask myself the same question.”
“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.”
“I mused for a few moments on the question of which was worse, to lead a life so boring that you are easily enchanted, or a life so full of stimulus that you are easily bored.”
