So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

– The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)

“Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it.”

– Eudora Welty (via quotes-shape-us)

“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, Mark Twain: The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It (via quotes-shape-us)
