A Quote by Robert J Ringer on choice, justice, life, simplicity, solution, theory, travel, and path

Life-complication Theory: Given a choice between an easy solution and a complicated one, the loser will usually opt to travel the complicated path. Don't ignore a solution just because it's simple!

Most travel is best of all in the anticipation or the remembering; the reality has more to do with losing your luggage.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on babies, country, language, learning, and travel

No man should travel until he has learned the language of the country he visits. Otherwise he voluntarily makes himself a great baby - so helpless and so ridiculous.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on behavior, belief, business, company, competition, ethics, purity, questions, travel, truth, and world

The question is, when so many others cut corners, shave the truth, self-deal, believe in the fast buck, and follow the crowd along the low road of least resistance, can we even afford to travel the high road of ethical behavior? Frankly, we can't afford anything else. Any other competitive angle is a pure crapshoot in today's business world. Companies with shaky ethics and shabby standards will be crippled as they try to compete in our changing world.

A Quote by Matthew Roydon on belief, books, grace, kindness, lies, mind, thought, and travel

A sweet attractive kind of grace, A full assurance given by looks, Continual comfort in a face, The lineaments of Gospel books; I trow that countenance cannot lie, Where thoughts are legible in the eye. Was never eye, did see that face, Was never ear, did hear that tongue, Was never mind, did mind his grace, That ever thought the travel long- But eyes, and ears, and ev'ry thought, Were with his sweet perfections caught. [trow; believe or think]

Matthew Roydon (1580 - 1622)
