travel

A Quote by Walter Russell on space, vacuum, void, ether, travel, matter, action, positive, electricity, negative, sun, black, cold, solid, god, creator, interchange, and continuous

The greatest error of science is in relation to space. Science thinks of space either as a void or as an ether through which solids of matter travel. The fact is that space travels with its solids, for each solid is surrounded by a minus zero equal-and-opposite vacuity of the plus zero which we call matter. Matter floats in these insulating spatial counterparts. Positive electricity is accountable for the solids and negative electricity is accountable for the space. All matter comes out of space by the action of positive electricity and is returned to space by the action of negative electricity. White-hot suns come from the blackness of cold space and cold space radiates from hot suns. The matter of space consists of holes surrounded by corpuscular solids, while the matter of solids consists of small
dense cores surrounded by vast tenuous holes of space. The very purpose of the hot suns is to act as crucibles for melting the raw materials which the Creator needs for expressing the idea of the universe. Contrarily, the very purpose of space is to cool the melted matter set out in order that it may become conditioned for the complex expressions of Creation. The two-way interchange between spatial holes and material solids is continuous."

A Quote by Richard Adams on time, weather, direction, travel, creatures, and rabbits

One watch succeeded another through the day, though how the rabbits judged the passing of the time is something that civilized human beings have lost the power to feel. Creatures that have neither clocks nor books are alive to all manner of knowledge about time and the weather; and about direction too, as we know from their extraordinary migratory and homing journeys. The changes in the warmth and dampness of the soil, the falling of the sunlight patches, the altering movement of the beans in the light wind, the direction and strength of the air currents along the ground - all these were perceived by the rabbit awake.

A Quote by W. Somerset Maugham on life, soul, human nature, and travel

I was a stray acquaintance whom he had never seem before and would never see again, a wandered for a moment through his monotonous life, and some starved impulse left him to lay bare his soul.  I have in this way learned more about men in a night than I could if I had known them for 10 years.  If you are interested in human nature, it is one of the greatest pleasures of travel.

W. Somerset Maugham

A Quote by W. Somerset Maugham on travel, change, freedom, journey, and maugham

I travel because I like to move from place to place, I enjoy the sense of freedom it gives me, it pleases me to be rid of ties, responsibilities, duties, I like the unknown; I meet odd people who amuse me for a moment and sometimes suggest a theme for a composition; I am often tired of myself and I have a notion that by travel I can add to my personality and so change myself a little.  I do not bring back from the journey quite the same self that I took

A Quote by W. Somerset Maugham on travel, change, memory, and meaning

I can only guess that it made the world he went back to…strangely without meaning.  Though he lived in it, though he even enjoyed it, it remained utterly remote.  I think it had lost sense for him.  In his heart was the reflection of a lovely dream that he could never quite recall.

A Quote by Joao Magueijo on physics, work, cosmology, cosmologist, theoretical physics, clarity, mind, silence, yin, play, travel, explorer, and vision

Thinking can be lateral or "sweaty". For the latter you're better off in an office and following a routine but for the former you have to be "out of your mind", so to speak. So although I recognize the merits of hard work, I find that my work goes stale if I don't go off wandering around the world every few weeks. My friends think I'm a gipsy, but that's when I do "part 1" of my best work.

A Quote by Mitch Hedberg on travel, map, world, comedy, and funny

I wanna hang a map of the world in my house. Then I'm gonna put pins into all the locations that I've traveled to. But first, I'm gonna have to travel to the top two corners of the map so it won't fall down.

A Quote by Sri Guru Granth Sahib on belief, pilgrimage, travel, and truth

The fire of doubt is not extinguished, even by wandering through foreign lands and countries. If inner filth is not removed, one's life is cursed, and one's clothes are cursed.
