Top 5 Travel Quotes That Will Inspire You.

1.“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu is a well-known Chinese philosopher and this take on his original translated quote (The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one’s feet) tells the story of perseverance and courage. To have the strength to start an endeavor, no matter how large or improbably, no matter the time or distance, and working to get there one step at a time.

2.“Wherever you go, go with all your heart”~ Confucius

What is true in life is that no matter what we do or where we go, if we don’t follow through with our heart we will always fall short of where we want to go, and what we want to do. To go with all of our heart is to be whole – not leaving a part of us behind that completes who we are but to embrace ourselves as a whole and follow through with that we are.

3.“Travel is never a matter of money but of courage.”~Paolo Coelho

The simple truth is that when it really comes down to it, if we want to do something we will find a way. And it doesn’t take money to get us there, but only our will and determination.

4.“Every day is a journey and the journey itself is home.”~Matsuo Basho

Why only focus on a destination, when the journey is just as important? Many people are so fixated on where they want to go that they cannot appreciate the beauty of every moment and every day of the journey. The present should be cherished as much as what will come next, because how we get there is as important as the destination.

5.“Traveling. It leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller.”~Ibn Battuta

We often get nervous when it comes to going new places, experiencing new things or meeting new people. We worry about the why and how so much that we forget to enjoy. Then we experience something so amazing, so breathtaking and so astonishing that we break free. We get so excited that we reach out to others so we can share our joy and allow them to experience it for that moment through our words and maybe one day, for themselves.
