Men may change their climate, but they cannot change their nature. A man that goes out a fool cannot ride or sail himself into common sense.
      - Joseph Addison

Travel makes all men countrymen, makes people noblemen and kings, every man tasting of liberty and dominion.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

The world is a great book, of which they that never stir from home read only a page.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

He that travels into a country before he has some entrance into the language, goeth to school and not to travel.
      - Francis Bacon

His travel has not stopp'd him
  As you suppose, nor alter'd any freedom,
    But made him far more clear and excellent:
      It drains the grossness of the understanding,
        And renders active and industrious spirits:
          He that knows men's manners, must of necessity
            Best know his own, and mend those by examples:
              'T is a dull thing to travel like a mill-horse,
                Still in the place he was born in, round and blinded.
      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher

Travel and society polish one, but a rolling stone gathers no moss, and a little moss is a good thing on a man.
      - John Burroughs

Perigrination charms our senses with such unspeakable and sweet variety that some count him that never traveled--a kind of prisoner, and pity his case: that, from his cradle to his old age, he beholds the same still, still,--still, the same, the same.
      - Robert Burton

She had resolved that be should travel through
  All European climes, by land or sea,
    To mend his former morals, and get new,
      Especially in France and Italy,
        (At least this is the thing most people do).
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

There is nothing gives a man such spirits,
  Leavening his blood as cayenne doth a curry,
    As going at full speed--no matter where its
      Direction be, so 'tis but in a hurry,
        And merely for the sake of its own merits;
          For the less cause there is for all this flurry,
            The greater is the pleasure in arriving
              At the great end of travel--which is driving.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Though sluggards deem it but a foolish chase,
  And marvel men should quit their easy chair,
    The toilsome way, and long, long league to trace;
      Oh! there is sweetness in the mountain air,
        And life, that bloated ease can never hope to share.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Never travel by sea when you can go by land.
      - Cato (Marcus Porcius Cato "The Elder") (a/k/a Cato the Censor)

Those who visit foreign nations, but who associate only with their own countrymen, change their climate, but not their customs; they see new meridians, but the same men; and with heads as empty as their pockets, return home with traveled bodies, but untraveled minds.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Returning he proclaims by many a grace,
  By shrugs and strange contortions of his face,
    How much a dunce that has been sent to roam,
      Excels a dunce that has been kept at home.
      - William Cowper

Every traveler has a home of his own, and he learns to appreciate it the more from his wandering.
      - Charles Dickens

Travel teaches toleration.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

To roam giddily, and be everywhere but at home, such freedom doth a banishment become.
      - Dr. John Donne

Too often travel, instead of broadening the mind, merely lengthens the conversation.
      - Elizabeth Drew (2)

Restless at home, and ever prone to range.
      - John Dryden

In travelling
  I shape myself betimes to idleness
    And take fools' pleasure.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

Traveling is a fool's paradise.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The man who, with undaunted toils
  Sails unknown seas to unknown soils,
    With various wonders feasts his sight;
      What stranger wonders does he write!
        We read, and in description view
          Creatures which Adam never knew:
            For, when we risk no contradiction
              It prompts the tongue to deal in fiction.
      - John Gay

There is probably no country so barbarous that would not disclose all it knew, if it received equivalent information; and I am apt to think that a person who was ready to give more knowledge than he received would be welcome wherever he came.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

The bee, though it finds every rose has a thorn, comes back loaded with honey from his rambles; and why should not other tourists do the same?
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

Joy! the lost one is restor'd!
  Sunshine comes to hearth and board.
    From the far-off countries old,
      Of the diamond and red gold,
        From the dusky archer bands,
          Roamers of the desert sands,
            He hath reach'd his home again.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

Travelers find virtue in a seeming minority in all other countries, and forget that they have left it in a minority at home.
      - Thomas Wentworth Higginson
