      I love traveling and thank you for nice quotes. My favorite from your list is "Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, i would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station." And another my favorite from my list is by Robert Louis Stevenson "I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."

      I like a Paul Theroux quote which goes "Travel is glamorous only in retrospect." Too true, often :-) Thanks for the list.
