Famous Wanderer Quotes

A good wanderer leaves no trace. Laozi

She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. Time for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water. Roman Payne

To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Sterling Hayden

She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city. Roman Payne

I am a wanderer passionately in love with life. Aleksandr Kuprin

You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination. Roman Payne

We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. Carl Sagan

I was an adventurer, but she was not an adventuress. She was a wanderess. Thus, she didn’t care about money, only experiences  whether they came from wealth or from poverty, it was all the same to her. Roman Payne

We are, finally, all wanderers in search of knowledge. Most of us hold the dream of becoming something better than we are, something larger, richer, in some way more important to the world and ourselves. Too often, the way taken is the wrong way, with too much emphasis on what we want to have, rather than what we wish to become. Louis L’Amour

There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave. Charlotte Eriksson

I have been thinking more and more that I shall always be a lone wanderer of the wilderness. God, how the trail lures me. You cannot comprehend its resistless fascination for me. After all, the lone trail is best I’ll never stop wandering. And when the time comes to die, I’ll find the wildest, loneliest, most desolate spot there is. Everett Ruess

What is a Wanderess? Bound by no boundaries, contained by no countries, tamed by no time, she is the force of nature’s course. Roman Payne

For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers, for lonely men and women who dare to ask of life everything good and beautiful. It is for those who are too gentle to live among wolves. James Kavanaugh

There’s only one place I want to go and it’s to all the places I’ve never been. Nikki Rowe

A solitary being is by instinct a wanderer. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

I wanted the monster back and that was plainly wrong. Stephenie Meyer

Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars. Carl Sagan

None of your knowledge, your reading, your connections will be of any use here two legs suffice, and big eyes to see with. Walk alone, across mountains or through forests. You are nobody to the hills or the thick boughs heavy with greenery. You are no longer a role, or a status, not even an individual, but a body, a body that feels sharp stones on the paths, the caress of long grass and the freshness of the wind. When you walk, the world has neither present nor future: nothing but the cycle of mornings and evenings. Always the same thing to do all day walk. But the walker who marvels while walking the blue of the rocks in a July evening light, the silvery green of olive leaves at noon, the violet morning hills has no past, no plans, no experience. He has within him the eternal child. While walking I am but a simple gaze. Frédéric Gros

To be a good storyteller one must be gloriously alive. It is not possible to kindle fresh fires from burned out embers. I have noticed that the best of the traditional storytellers whom I have heard have been those who live close to the heart of things to the earth, the sea, wind and weather. They have been those who knew solitude, silence. They have been given unbroken time in which to feel deeply, to reach constantly for understanding. They have come to know the power of the spoken word. These storytellers have been sailors and peasants, wanderers and fisherman. Ruth Sawyer

I was lieing to myself when I thought I was lost, I have never been lost. I just wasn’t ready to be found. Nikki Rowe

He who has attained intellectual emancipation to any extent cannot, for a long time, regard himself otherwise than as a wanderer on the face of the earth and not even as a traveller towards a final goal, for there is no such thing. Friedrich Nietzsche

We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Khalil Gibran

For Wayfarers still journeying, for Wanderers at rest. Lloyd Alexander

I am a free soul, singing my heart out by myself no matter where I go and I call strangers my friends because I learn things and find ways to fit them into my own world. I hear what people say, rearrange it, take away and tear apart until it finds value in my reality and there I make it work. I find spaces in between the cracks and cuts where it feels empty and there I make it work. Charlotte Eriksson

We were wanderers from the beginning. Carl Sagan

Magnus had always had a wanderer’s heart. Over the centuries, he had adventured in so many different places, always looking for something that would fulfill his restless hunger. He never realized how all the pieces could fall together, how home could be somewhere and someone. He belonged with Alec. His wandering heart could rest. Cassandra Clare

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that 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. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Whenever you go on a trip to visit foreign lands or distant places, remember that they are all someone’s home and backyard. Vera Nazarian

He who has attained the freedom of reason to any extent cannot, for a long time, regard himself otherwise than as a wanderer on the face of the earth and not even as a traveler towards a final goal, for there is no such thing. But he certainly wants to observe and keep his eyes open to whatever actually happens in the world; therefore he cannot attach his heart too firmly to anything individual; he must have in himself something wandering that takes pleasure in change and transitoriness. Friedrich Nietzsche

Let there be room left in your heart for the unimaginable serendipity has a way of showing itself just when you feel like giving up. Nikki Rowe

I have been a wanderer among distant fields. I have sailed down mighty rivers. Percy Bysshe Shelley

Yea, I shall return with the tide. Khalil Gibran

Then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. You give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Neil Gaiman

My soul is being whisked away again, to a place unfamiliar and not many know my name but its calling and following that instinct is all i know. Nikki Rowe

I held you in my hands, Wanderer, and you were beautiful. Stephenie Meyer

We live and work in a world that carries preoccupations about money, but what does the soul care about such things? Llewellyn Vaughan Lee

We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another, and no sunrise finds us where left by sunset. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of that tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind to be scattered. Khalil Gibran

But walking causes absorption. Walking interminably, taking in through your pores the height of the mountains when you are confronting them at length, breathing in the shape of the hills for hours at a time during a slow descent. The body becomes steeped in the earth it treads. And thus, gradually, it stops being in the landscape it becomes the landscape. That doesn’t have to mean dissolution, as if the walker were fading away to become a mere inflection, a footnote. It’s more a flashing moment sudden flame, time catching fire. And here, the feeling of eternity is all at once that vibration between presences. Eternity, here, in a spark. Frédéric Gros

Two is company, four is a party, three is a crowd. One is a wanderer. James Thurber

One learns most when one wanders the world. Tamuna Tsertsvadze

Travel and society polish one, but a rolling stone gathers no moss, and a little moss is a good thing on a man. John Burroughs

Traveling to me is like forgetting all the nonsense that my mind assumed over the years. Sumit Tak

The laws all true wanderers obey are these Thou shalt not eat nor drink more than thy share, Thou shalt not lie about the places thou hast visited or the distances thou hast traversed. Rosita Forbes

It is in my nature to go away far from you, wandering around and making sense of life. But I hope you know that I do care for you. Avijeet Das

Not even for an hour can you bear to be alone, nor can you advantageously apply your leisure time, but you endeavor, a fugitive and wanderer, to escape from yourself, now vainly seeking to banish remorse by wine, and now by sleep; but the gloomy companion presses on you, and pursues you as you fly. Horace

Through all his years of roving, even on nights like this, he had remained blind to the beauty of the sea, and now his feeling toward it had settled into weary hatred. He knew its effects of blended color, its wide gradations of sound and action, the tireless charm of a sailing ship’s effortless movement, the quality of silent distance and the wonder of the skies. Dimly at times, in moments of rare emotion, he had caught a glimpse of the mystic hand that beckons beyond the horizon and felt for a little while the fated urge of the wanderer. But that was in the beginning, long ago when he had first gone to sea, and he had forgotten it. William Outerson

Definition of a wanderer a guy who’s always looking beyond. Stephen King

The sky is busy tonight. I wonder who’s under it more than me? Charlotte Eriksson

Perhaps some deep rooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history. Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he mysteriously feels that he belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle amid scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest. W. Somerset Maugham

As a Wanderer, you must be true to yourself. You cannot continue to follow the crowd. Bill Plotkin

Unless you have suffered and wept, you really don’t understand what compassion is, nor can you give comfort to someone who is suffering. If you haven’t cried, you can’t dry another’s eyes. Unless you’ve walked in darkness, you can’t help wanderers find the way. Unless you’ve looked into the eyes of menacing death and felt its hot breath, you can’t help another rise from the dead and taste anew the joy of being alive. Takashi Nagai

I don’t settle down. I don’t follow any path. Because I am the wanderer and wandering is my destiny! Avijeet Das

We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Khalil Gibran

Something in her eyes made wise boatmen hesitate something that spoke of abandon and fearlessness, a person dangerously unmoored from her own future. Alix E. Harrow

A wanderer is man from his birth. He was born in a ship On the breast of the river of Time. Matthew Arnold

While I was sauntering down the road, the rain was drizzling from the clouds that were drifting in the sky. And I could not decide who was the wanderer the rain, or the clouds, or me! Avijeet Das

Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind one sees the path. Antonio Machado

We were both wanderers, restlessness dripping from our wild lips like rain. And even if no place would ever truly be home for us, I found it in the way you held my hand that day. Marie Kristin Hofmann

To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea cruising it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about. Sterling Hayden

I wake up in strange beds and in unknown rooms. I wander in dark alleys and crooked roads. Some days I don’t even see the sun. Some nights the moon hides from me. I am the wanderer and wandering is my destiny! Avijeet Das

Vast is the power of cities to reclaim the wanderer. Sinclair Lewis

He was Odysseus one moment, the Ancient Mariner the next, an ordinary man like Tom Joad or a seeker like Douglas Adams’s hitchhiker. He wandered in search of a past that existed only inside himself. He sought fields of flowers and towering cliffs that jutted out over the ocean and mountaintops that pierced the clouds. Susan Wiggs

What I prized most was freedom, freedom to do my work, to give myself spontaneously and not out of duty or by command. I could not submit to such demands; rather would I choose the path of a homeless wanderer; yes, even go without love. Emma Goldman

She was a curious girl, a wanderer, who spent her summers chasing fluttering pieces of prose and eating strawberries. Michael Faudet

May my life be like a great hospitable tree, and may weary wanderers find in me a rest. John Henry Jowett

The goal of my life is to tie adventure to my feet, stock memories in my pocket, hold imagination in my palms like fairy dust and sprinkle it on my tales. Mitali Meelan

Without a home must the soldier go, a changeful wanderer, and can warm himself at no home lit hearth. Friedrich Schiller

You are a wanderer. You have spent days and nights in loneliness. And somehow you have got addicted to your loneliness. And one day you meet someone and you feel as if you have known them all your life. It’s like you both are just continuing from where you had left a long time ago. And the silences between you, too have meaning! Avijeet Das

A pilgrim is a wanderer with purpose. Peace Pilgrim

She was no better than the shells by her feet, tumbling this way and that at the beck and call of the waves. Katherine McIntyre

Ian squeezed my hand and leaned in to whisper through all the hair. His voice was so low that I was the only one who could hear. I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful. Stephenie Meyer
