When it comes to travel quotes, I tend to see the same ones over and over again. No offense, St Augustine's “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” quote is lovely but there's really no call to action. It's more of a statement than a prompt.
What I want out of a quote is something that actually inspires me to make a change. That's why the words I find most motivational aren't necessarily about travel and how wonderful it is. They're the ones that make me question societal norms and challenge how I look at life.

I think we all know the conventional plan: school, college, marry, buy house, have kids. This is the pre-designed life plan which, while great for some, is absolutely boring to me.
Have the courage to create your own goals and not just live by everyone else's standards. Most people will think you're crazy for wanting to travel constantly but what does it matter if it makes you happy?
Strongly related to quote number three, let go of the belief that you have to do what everyone around you is doing. Don't compare yourself to others. Just pursue your own life.
