Travel is food for the soul. Since time immemorial many great scholars and poets have been writing about the importance of being a wanderer in this world. In this era and age when travelling has become so much easier and convenient, we see more and more people following their passion for travelling. Here are a some quotes by Rumi, the most celebrated poet of all times to remind you and inspire you to stop making excuses and explore the world because we’ve only got one life to live and so much to discover.
Travel brings power and love back into your life.
What a joy, to travel the way of the heart.
My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?
We carry inside us the wonders we seek outside us.
Run from what’s comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious. I have tried prudent planning long enough. From now on I’ll be mad.
Why do you stay in prison, when the door is so wide open?
Don’t wait any longer. Dive in the ocean, leave and let the sea be you.
Let yourself become living poetry.
Wander away into the unknown depths of this world and let your soul be your guide.
