Think of life as a voyage. The truest liver of the truest life is like a voyager
who, as he sails, is not indifferent to all the beauty of the sea around him.

No matter what happens, travel gives you a story to tell.
Too much work, and no vacation,
Deserves at least a small libation.
So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses,
Work's the curse of the drinking classes.
Laughter is an instant vacation.
Traveling is not just seeing the new; it is also leaving behind.
Not just opening doors; also closing them behind you, never to return.
But the place you have left forever is always there for you to see
whenever you shut your eyes.

We need to develop a "vacation attitude" every day by being focused
on what we need to accomplish by the end of each day.
Catherine Pulsifer, A Vacation Attitude
Vacation - A period of travel and relaxation when you take twice the
clothes and half the money you need.
In simple terms, it is sometimes better to let your mind
go to zero where you are not consciously trying to arrive
at an answer or solution. In order to take this mini zero vacation,
you probably will best be doing something totally different from
whatever it is you are attempting to overcome or resolve.
Byron Pulsifer, The Zero Vacation
The Zero Vacation |
Vacations mean a change of pace,
a gentleness with ourselves, a time of rest and renewal, and
a time to stretch ourselves and encounter new people, new lands,
new ways, and new options.
Anne Wilson Schaef
The point is this: if you do what you love, it doesn't matter in the least
that a vacation has to end. If you love what you do you will not find
yourself wishing for even a few more days of vacation, or wishing that
you could keep enjoying this vacation for much, much longer.
Byron Pulsifer, Happy To Return
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one.
Funny Quotes about Life |
It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive disenchanted.
It's never too late, for with a purpose, a worthy goal
and a motivation to reach those upper layers on the pyramid,
a person can travel further in a few years than he might otherwise
travel in a lifetime.
