Sail Away

Posted in Uncategorized on April 23, 2012 by stevemccurry


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


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began,
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
– Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien


I had become, with the approach of night, once more aware of
loneliness and time – those two companions without whom no
journey can yield us anything.
– Lawrence Durrell

Bamiyan Province, Afghanistan


Earth’s crammed with heaven.
– Elizabeth Barrett Browning




Go far. Stay long. See deep.
And may the sun rise twice before you sleep.


The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.
I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.

– Robert Louis Stevenson


To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the
pleasantest sensations in the world.

A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.

Bizarre travel plans are dancing lessons from God.
– Kurt Vonnegut

Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky –
forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world.
The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it.
-Mark Jenkins
