The Traveler

“He should be endowed with an active, indefatigable vigor of mind and body, which can… support, with a careless smile, every hardship of the road, the weather, or the inn.”

    – Edward Gibbon (1760) on the qualifications for a traveler

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

    – Mark Twain
