199 Inspirational Travel Quotes to Feed Your Wanderlust

I will never stop being in love with quotes.

Quotes are magical. How so few words, when chosen cleverly and put together skillfully, could convey so much meaning is remarkable. How pithy sayings could impart the wisdom of many years is awe-inspiring. How certain turns of phrase could so easily move us to laughter, to tears, or to overdue action, is altogether beautiful.

Quotes are powerful. They could evoke enduring images, thoughts, or memories; or tap into our well of emotions. They could stir our minds, kindle our hearts, and rouse our souls almost with little difficulty.

Quotes are timeless. They endure even if their authors are long gone, the immortal words of mortal beings. Seldom do they lose their appeal, and more so their meaning. Quotes will always be useful so long as there is a need for insight and inspiration.

Here is a compilation of some of the most inspiring quotes on travel and adventure. If you are looking for motivation to feed your wanderlust, and encouragement to help get you started on your next trip, perhaps one of these beautiful quotes can help. And if one is not enough, all 199 of them should do the trick.
