It's Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. For those who aren't familiar with Quotable Sunday, it's the day we list a few of our favorite quotes. Since I'm just returning from a business trip, I decided to focus on travel. Here are a few of my favorite travel quotes:

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. ~Lin Yutang

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money. ~Susan Heller

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind. ~Seneca

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes "sight-seeing." ~Daniel J. Boorstin

What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do - especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road. ~William Least

I have found out that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them. ~Mark Twain

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. ~Mark Twain

The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway. ~Henry Boye
