Wednesday Wisdom - On The Road

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

- Robert Frost (1874 - 1963)
The Road Not Taken

To travel hopefully
is a better thing than to arrive.

- Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894)

Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights;
it is a change that goes on,
deep and permanent,

in the ideas of living.

- Miriam Beard

A man travels the world over
in search of what he needs

and returns home to find it.

- George Moore

Little by little, one travels far.

- J. R. R. Tolkien (1892 - 1973)

He who would travel happily
must travel light.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944)

Once you have traveled,
the voyage never ends,
but is played out over and over again

in the quietest chambers,
that the mind can never break off
from the journey.

- Pat Conroy (1945 - )
The Prince of Tides

Happiness is not a station you arrive at,
but a manner of traveling.

- Margaret Lee Runbeck

Though we travel the world over
to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not.

- Emerson

It appears that 'grey nomads' are the new black and caravans are the new Concordes. Slight exaggeration perhaps, but if it's good enough for Ms. Moss...

I have been nursing a not so secret desire to try my hand at caravan decoration - what fun, small but perfectly formed. Thanks for the extra inspiration - divine
