The quotes:

     - St. Augustine

The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.
     - Louis L'Amour, Ride the Dark Trail

Trains are wonderful.... To travel by train is to see nature and human beings, towns and churches and rivers, in fact, to see life.
     - Agatha Christie

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
     - Benjamin Disraeli

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
     - Mark Twain
