Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.

Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.

I'm in love with cities I've never been to and people I've never met.

I see girls carrying purses depicting Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast with Tiffanys without knowing who Truman Capote is. People that wonder why are fat when all they drink is slimfast chocolate milkshakes. People that look at a train and wonder where it’s going without even considering the possibility of getting on it. And that’s the real crime, not being oblivious to the changes, but being oblivious to the fact that you can make them.

A pain stabbed my heart, as it did every time I saw a girl I loved who was going the opposite direction in this too-big world.

"There was once a man who became unstuck in the world – he realized that he was not his car, he realized that he was not his job, he was not his phone, his desk or his shoes. Like a boat cut from its anchor, he’d begin to drift."
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.

My first trip to Brazil, with no money or idea where I was staying, I had a revelation that just said "F**k it."

But travel maps have always been provisional and penciled in, continually updated. The map of the possible world being redrawn right now — parts of it in tragic and unsettling ways — might soon mean new opportunities for the traveler who dares to try it. Travel, especially of the old laborious kind, has never seemed to me of greater importance, more essential, more enlightening.

As the traveler who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep, so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily, to appreciate more lovingly, our own.

If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there.

The open road is a beckoning, a strangeness, a place where a man can lose himself.
