Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Traveller Quotes from famous authors such as Ricki-Lee Coulter, Dhani Jones, Thomas Wolfe, Richard Le Gallienne, David Mitchell. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
I see myself as a bit of a traveller. I am a workaholic.
My parents took me around the world when I was young, so I caught the bug. Every person is different when he travels, and every travellers’ story is uniquely his own.
All things on earth point home in old October; sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken.
All roads indeed lead to Rome, but theirs also is a more mystical destination, some bourne of which no traveller knows the name, some city, they all seem to hint, even more eternal.
I’ve become a less brave traveller since I became a dad, but in the past I was more foolhardy than brave.
Ned made a tremendous rattling, at which Bullet took fright, broke his bridle, and dashed off in grand style; and would have stopped all farther negotiations by going home in disgust, had not a traveller arrested him and brought him back; but Kit did not move.

The road to ruin is always in good repair, and the travellers pay the expense of it.
The traveller who aspires to reach the highlands of Tibet from Kashmir cannot be borne along in a carriage or hill-cart. For much of the way, he is limited to a foot pace, and if he has regard to his horse, he walks down all rugged and steep descents, which are many, and dismounts at most bridges.
Sri Lanka is an island that everyone loves at some level inside themselves. A very special island that travellers, from Sinbad to Marco Polo, dreamed about. A place where the contours of the land itself forms a kind of sinewy poetry.
I have always considered it a beautiful metaphor that Cervantes had no fixed address in Spain. He is thus everywhere and nowhere. There are a number of sites connected with his life, but none attract hordes of travellers the way Stratford-upon-Avon and the Globe Theatre in London draw Shakespeare aficionados.
I’m not a Little Englander. Historically, British people have always been travellers. I look in the world as one place. You have to think in a global sense. Cinema is a global endeavour. My roots are in England but my endeavours are worldwide.
I cannot assume emotions I do not feel, and must describe Jerusalem as I found it. Since being here, I have read the accounts of several travellers, and in many cases the devotional rhapsodies – the ecstacies of awe and reverence – in which they indulge, strike me as forced and affected.
I think some of the best modern writing comes now from travellers.
Rather than allowing Roma, Travellers and homeless people to be picked off, all those of us who fear the criminalisation of trespass should join forces with them, protecting their rights while we defend our own.
Technology has spoiled me and I’m so dependent on it that I do not even remember my mother’s mobile number! And I used my phone not just for the calls but all my selfies and notes and reminders and as a GPS locator as I’m a frequent traveller.
The travel book is a convenient metaphor for life, with its optimistic beginning or departure, its determined striving, and its reflective conclusion. Journeys change travellers just as a good travel book can change readers.
The traveller has reached the end of the journey!
I see myself as a traveller.
If we want to talk about Gross Natural Product, we have to talk about the King of Bhutan’s index of Gross National Happiness, too. Certainly I have found, as many travellers before me, that people in the poorest places are often the readiest to shower me, from an affluent country, with hospitality and kindness.
We travellers are in very hard circumstances. If we say nothing but what has been said before us, we are dull and have observed nothing. If we tell anything new, we are laughed at as fabulous and romantic.
If you want more kids to become engineers in space, travellers, and pilots, then you have to expose them to those types of careers.

Certain travellers give the impression that they keep moving because only then do they feel fully alive.
I will become the greatest, because all travellers have to be able to adapt. That quality, adaptability, is essential to that way of life. Not many boxers have it but I can adapt before a fight to the opponent, during the fight if necessary.
I feel like I live out of a suitcase. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’m a happy traveller.
And I can tell you from firsthand experience that our train system is a mess. Carriages are full of unhappy travellers packed together like sardines, who have inexplicably paid for the privilege of being incarcerated.
Well, I’m a light traveller. I chuck things away.
Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
No traveller ever sets out with so little idea of where he is going or how he is going to get there than an artist does. And no traveller ever gets to a more wonderful place.

I’m essentially a traveller. I love to do many things.
