Me other cares in other climes engage,
  Cares that become my birth, and suit my age:
    In various knowledge to instruct my youth,
      And conquer prejudice, worst foe to truth,
        By foreign arts, domestic faults to mend,
          Enlarge my notions, and my views extend;
            The useful science of the world to know,
              Which books can never teach, nor pedants show.
      - Lord George Lyttelton, 1st Baron Lyttelton ("The Good Lord Lyttelton")

  By ways to me unknown;
    I travel, like a bird of flight,
      Onward, and all alone.

      - John Ruskin

A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi)

Ay, now am I in Arden: the more fool I; when I was at home, I was in a better place; but travellers must be content.
      - William Shakespeare

Rather see the wonders of the world abroad, than, living dully sluggardized at home, wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness.

People travel to learn; most of them before they start should learn to travel.

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.
