The travel or journey quotes which I gathered here are about both traveling to different places and also about the journey of life. After all life is a journey lined with lessons, agonies, difficulties, challenges, joys, celebrations and special memorable moments.
As you know every path has its puddles. In other words, life is not all beer and skittles. You have your good days and your bad as well. Traveling the down of the road of life, one has to keep oneself in alignment for the inevitable ride.
Talking about journey of life, you should read “Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart: Thirty True Things You Need To Know Now” by physician and and psychiatrist, Gordon Livingston. In this 169-page book, you find 30 inspirational wisdom about life.
