This travel quote is famous among dreamers and wanderers alike, and for good reason. It’s a beautiful tribute to taking risks and choosing the nontraditional.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

I like how romantic Twain’s description of travel is. And I appreciate the sentiment as well: sometimes I wonder what I’m doing with my life, but I’m fairly confident that when I look back in twenty years I’ll be happy with the choices I’ve made.

    Perhaps we should have Tshirts printed with this to better explain ourselves.

      I want to make all my travel quotes into t-shirts! Good idea but the licensing might be a nightmare.
