Quotable Sunday - #4



Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each Sunday. I am leaving on a road trip tomorrow (Sunday) night. We will drive straight through to Idaho and get there mid-morning. Then I will be there until for just under 2 weeks until I fly to Colorado. I will spend a long weekend in Colorado and then fly to Los Angeles, go see my grandma for a day and then pick up my sister who is flying home from England and then home! In honor of all that, I am doing quotes on traveling.

Travel only with thy equals or thy betters; if there are none, travel alone.
-The Dhammapada

The saying "Getting there is half the fun" became obsolete with the advent of commercial airlines.
-Henry J. Tillman

I have found out that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.
-Mark Twain

A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.
-Lao Tzu

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.
-St. Augustine

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.
-Susan Heller
