      - Francis Bacon, Of Travel

Go far--too far you cannot, still the farther
  The more experience finds you: And go sparing;--
    One meal a week will serve you, and one suit,
      Through all your travels; for you'll find it certain,
        The poorer and the baser you appear,
          The more you look through still.

The world is a country which nobody ever yet knew by description; one must travel through it one's self to be acquainted with it.

I love to travel,
  But hate to arrive.

In traveling
  I shape myself betimes to idleness
    And take fools' pleasure.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--

    And that has made all the difference.

      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Iliad
         (bk. V, l. 749), (Bryant's translation)

They change their sky, not their mind, who cross the sea. A busy idleness possesses us: we seek a happy life, with ships and carriages: the object of our search is present with us.
  [Lat., Coelum, non animum mutant, qui trans mare currunt.
    Strenua nos exercet inertia, navibus atque
      Quadrigis petimus bene vivere; quod petis hic est.]
