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.
I missed flights and I missed trains, but I found the world beneath my feet.
The key secret to success is not excessive expertise, but the ability to use it. Knowledge is worthless unless it is applied.
To live in the world without becoming aware of the meaning of the world is like wandering about in a great library and never touching a book.
Manly P. Hall
I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.
Henry David Thoreau
He who hurries through life hurries to his grave.
Game of Thrones
People know you for what you’ve done, not for what you plan to do.
The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
Hunter S. Thompson
Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
Robert J. Burdette
I am invincible as long as I’m alive.
To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Learn as if you would live forever, live as if you would die tomorrow.

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.
George R.R. Martin
The difference between where you are today and where you'll be five years from now will be found in the quality of books you've read.
