Words of Note

On Traveling....

The months and days are the travelers of eternity. The years that come and go are also voyagers.... I too for years past have been stirred by the sight of a solitary cloud drifting with the wind to ceaseless thoughts of roaming.

- Matsuo Basho

As the Spanish proverb says, ``He, who would bring home the wealth of the Indies, must carry the wealth of the Indies with him,'' so it is in traveling, a man must carry knowledge with him if he would bring home knowledge.

The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.

- Samuel Johnson

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

- Robert Louis Stevenson
