wise status about life

65 Wise Sayings About Life To Expand Your Understanding

wise status about life

Travel quotes can be powerful. Through quotes, we have been inspired to take chances, we've been inspired to travel, to take action, and to strive to live a better life.

Best Travel Quotes in the World

Dave and I have been gathering quotes about travel for years. From inspirational quotes to motivational quotes, we find that other people often say the words better than we can.

We thought it was time to round up all the traveling quotes we've posted on our travel blog, pinned to Pinterest, and shared on social media together in one place.

Whether you enjoy short travel quotes or the longer ones we guarantee one of these will speak to your love for travel and life.

Feel free to pin, save, tweet, and post on your own social media. Let's spread the word of love, travel, and adventure. We need it now more than ever!

1. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

The Very Best Traveling Quotes

Okay so maybe it isn't exactly true because if you buy a house, it may grow in value and if you buy stocks, you may get lucky and hit the jackpot, but you can never go wrong with travel.

But travel brings riches in life with experiences, learning and making new friends.

Famous Travel Quotes

2. “Travel is  fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness., and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.” ~ Mark Twain

Mark Twain's Famous Travel Quote

This is my favorite quote about travel because travel is truly an education. When you travel you learn so much, opening your mind and heart and becoming a better person.

I remember clipping out cards from Oprah Winfrey's “O Magazine” when looking for inspiration in my life more than a decade ago.

We would put her cards up all over our house. On the refrigerator, in the bathroom on our mirrors…everywhere. They were used to motivate us to find our purpose in life.

3. ” The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” ~ Marcel Proust

Eventually, we found our purpose, and quotes played a large part in that. Since then, we've always looked to travel quotes for inspiration.

Adventure Travel Quotes

Since we love a great adventure, we thought we'd start by sharing our favorite quotes about travel that inspired us to push through, keep going, and have the freedom to travel the world. Even when the going got tough. Enjoy!

4. “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it's lethal”

I love traveling quotes. Whenever I take on a new adventure, I think about a quote to go with it. When ice climbing in Alberta, I definitely thought of this travel quote.

5. “Great things never came from comfort zones.”

Do you love travel quotes? Got a favorite you want to add? We truly believe great things never came from comfort zones. What do you think?

6. “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”

When looking for quotes on adventure travel, this one really stuck out by Maya Angelou.

It wasn't until we started to live a life less ordinary that we understood how much control we had on our lives and just how amazing we could make it.

7. “Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and enjoy the journey”

This doesn't only have to be designated as a quotation on travel alone.

Life itself has a lot of potholes. So whether you are traveling or at home working at your job, you should definitely enjoy the journey.

8. “Fear is only temporary. Regrets last forever.”


Are you wanting to travel the world but afraid to take the next step? The quote above says it all. Fear is only temporary, but if you don't follow your dream, you may regret it forever.

9. “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

This is one of my favourite quotes on adventure travel.

It's scary to step out of your comfort zone, but if you do so with proper training and guidance, a whole new life will begin!

10. “Travel doesn't become adventure until you leave yourself behind”

Wondering what this trip quote means?

Well to me I think that you have to leave your burdens, your stress, and your preconceived notions behind. To understand travel, you must be open to new possibilities and it will change your life.

11. “Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.

This is one of those quotes about travel that has never rung truer than in today's society. Everyone is traveling to show off and brag or catch a selfie rather than to have an experience.

When we climbed the mountain above (Mount Kinabalu in Borneo) we didn't share one social media post about it and today it still remains one of our greatest personal achievements.

Best Traveling Quotes

12. “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” ~Andre Gide

When in search of travelling quotes, I always look for something that has a deeper meaning.

When Dave and I first started our careers in travel, we kept one toe in our careers and one toe in travel. It wasn't until we finally let go of our safe life in the film industry and took a chance to go all into our new adventure travel careers that everything changed.

13. “It is not the destination where you end up but the mishaps and memories you create along the way.”

We all make mistakes in life and travel. And it really is the mishaps and adventures you have along the road of life and travel that make for everlasting memories.

 Inspirational Travel Quotes

People often wonder what the purpose of travel is.

How does travel make life richer and why does it resonate so much with so many people?

These quotes about traveling inspire us to make more out of our travels than just a vacation. They ignite a spark that makes us want to understand the world and ourselves.

14. “I would rather own a little and see the world than own the world and see a little of it.”


Quotes about traveling often have a message of being free from possessions and things, and instead of having life experiences instead.

I don't think there is another travel quote that says it better than this one.

15.  “It is better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.”

When travelling, quotes often spring to mind.

When we saw the Taj Mahal for the first time, we had heard about it many times. We had read about it and people had told us all about it.

But it wasn't until we saw it that we really understand its beauty and meaning.

16. “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but having new eyes.”

There you go. Just because a person is well travelled, doesn't mean they are open and wise.

You can travel to a hundred places checking off the bucket list. But to see with new eyes and to be open to new possibilities…well that is the true meaning of travel.

17. “I travel not to go anywhere but to go. I travel for travel's sake.”

I have to admit, Dave and I are like this. We just love to travel. It doesn't matter where.

People snickered at us for traveling to Ottawa last week because it was so close to home. But we had the most amazing time in our own back yard.

No matter where we go, we always learn something new.

18. “Live with no excuses and travel with no regrets”

If there is one of the quotes about travel that stands out, this is it.

For life and travel, we all must follow our path without making excuses and we should never live with regrets.

19. “We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.”

Many people think traveling quotes are all about people escaping and dreaming.

But to us, this quote captures exactly what travel is all about.

We never traveled to escape life, we always traveled to find ourselves.

20. “People don't take trips, trips take people.”

Truth! We all take trips, but most of the time the trip ends up taking a life of its own.

This doesn't have a deeper meaning it's just a cute little travel quote we want to share.

See how travel changed our lives and turned us into adventurers

21. “Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”

I think I said it above, but traveling quotes often mention the fact of how travel makes you humble and how life experiences are more important than accumulating things.

It is easy to say in a quote, but when you do go someplace magnificent, you really do understand how insignificant you are and just how awesome this world it.

22. “Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember and remember more than I have seen.”

Benjamin Disraeli put this in his famous quotes about traveling arsenal and it really makes me think.

It is true that I have seen more than I remember.

And then again, I tend to remember much of our travels differently. Perhaps I embellish a memory or create a more positive narrative than what the experience really was.

As another  famous quote about traveling says “Travel is glamorous only in retrospect.”

23. “Don't listen to what they say, go see” ~ Chinese Proverb

Ain't that the truth. This can go either way.

Perhaps people tell you not to go to a place because it is awful when indeed it is beautiful.

Or perhaps someone constantly tells you how wonderful a destination is. Well, go and see for yourself and make up your own mind. That's what this says to me.

Inspirational Quotes related to Travel

Through the years we've gathered a lot of quotes on adventure travel, quotes on travel and love and famous quotes about travel.

As we hit the halfway mark on the post, we hope you have found some inspiration to take action on your dreams and maybe think about life and travel a bit differently.

24. “Whenever you find yourself on the side of majority, it's time to pause and reflect.”

Mark Twain is one of the Greats when it comes to creating famous quotes about travel.

We have always tried to live a life less ordinary and think outside the box.

I do believe this has helped us have success in our business and our relationship. I keep this travel quote pinned to my wall.

25. “Those who follow the crowd usually get lost in it.”

And this inspirational quote is very similar in sentiment.

Don't get lost in the crowd. Be an individual. Think big and be brave.

Stand out and live life to the fullest.

26. “The world is changed by your example, not your opinion.”

 I think in today's society this couldn't be truer.

Lately, we all have opinions, but it is time for us all to start being the example of who we want and to live our lives.

27. “To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”

This is one of the great quotes about travel to other places.

We often have preconceived notions of what other countries are like.

Travel helps us to understand and learn about different cultures and ways of life. This travel quote couldn't ring truer.

28. “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Travel often opens our eyes to different ways of thinking and understanding the world.

We as travel bloggers love to preach what we have learned to the world, but we also need to live by example.

That is something we strive to work on every day.

29. “Don't quit your day dream.”

One of my favourite quotes about wanderlust.

One of the things Dave and I are most thankful for is the fact that we never stopped dreaming.

We didn't become professional travel bloggers until our mid-30s.

If we settled (like we were supposed to in life) we'd still be working at our jobs thinking we weren't allowed to have dreams once we reached a certain age.

Never stop dreaming.

30. “There's a sunrise and sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.”

This is one of my favourite travel quotes because you don't have to travel to enjoy a sunset.

Too many of us wait until we are abroad to appreciate life and nature. Get out there now and start living today. From home!

31. “Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

We like to travel with purpose. When we first started traveling, we had no direction and just went around the world backpacking.

I'll never forget saying to Dave “I need meaning to my travels.” It was by creating this blog, creating our videos and creating our purpose to share our experience that I finally created myself.

32. “If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it.”

This is certainly one of the best motivational quotes that have to do with travel.

I often hear of people complaining that they never got their break. But you know what?

You can't wait for things to happen, you have to make them happen.

33. “Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing.”

Do you ever just stop and take a breath and look around. I am amazed at the little things.

When you stop and think about it for a moment, life really is amazing.

34. “Without new experiences, something inside us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.”

Don't let your life pass you by.

Travel can awaken the giant within. It did for us!

35. “Doing what you like is freedom, liking what you do is happiness.”

It took us nearly 40 years to understand this motivational quote.

All my life I worked hard and dreamed of what I might do one day when I retire.

Once I learned that doing what you love is happiness and you won't have to dream about what might be one day.
