Travel quotes are short phrases but can say and mean a lot. They can be very inspiring when you want to go travelling. I like travel quotes as an encouragement to go out and see the world and get inspired by it. In the end, part of travelling is getting out of your comfort zone and opening up yourself for other people and cultures.
A ship is safe in a harbour, but that’s not what ships are built for
With regard of this travel quote, I came across this poem, with unknown author, which really grabbed me. The meaning of travelling and getting out of your comfort zone is so beautifully described in it.
Ships are safe in the harbour (author unknown)
All I live for is now
All I stand for is where and how
All I wish for are magic moments
As I sail through change
My resolve remains the same
What I chose are magic moments
Because ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are made for
The mind could stretch much further
But it seems that is not what our minds are trained for
We call for random order
You can’t control Mother nature’s daughter
Ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are built for
The witch hunter roams
The scary thing is that he’s not alone
He’s trying to down my magic moments
As we sail through change
Ride the wind of a silent rage
And sing laments of magic moments
