Quotes About Travelling And Nature

There she sits in the corner of the carriage—that carriage which is travelling, not from Richmond to Waterloo, but from one age of English literature to the next, for Mrs. Brown is eternal, Mrs. Brown is human nature, Mrs. Brown changes only on the surface, it is the novelists who get in and out—there she sits and not one of the Edwardian writers has so much as looked at her. They have looked very power- fully, searchingly, and sympathetically out of the window ; at factories, at Utopias, even at the decoration and upholstery of the carriage ; but never at her, never at life, never at human nature.
— Virginia Woolf —

Everything, it said, was against the travellers, every obstacle imposed alike by man and by nature.

Would he not find himself, when travelling by steamer in winter, at the mercy of the winds and fogs?

— Jules Verne
