Travellers


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

The traveller sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see. - Gilbert K. Chesterton

The traveller was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes "sight-seeing." - Daniel J. Boorstin

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign. - Robert Louis Stevenson

Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travellers don’t know where they’re going. - Paul Theroux

We are all travellers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend. - Robert Louis Stevenson
