Travel Quote – Happiness is to be found along the way…

Standard

humble

“Happiness is to be found along the way,

not at the end of the road,

for then the journey is over

and it is too late.

Today,

this hour,

this minute is the day,

the hour,

the minute for each of us to sense the fact that life is good,

with all of its trials and troubles,

and perhaps more interesting because of them.”


- Robert R. Updegraff

Quote – Security is Mostly a Superstition

Standard
confort-zone
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” 
- Helen Keller

Travel Quote – Happiness Is…

Standard
bliss
“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don’t, you will leak away your innate contentment. It’s easy enough to pray when you’re in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments.”

- Elizabeth Gilbert
