10 Non-Cliche Travel Quotes

I recently posted 10 Cliche But Inspiring Travel Quotes - the typical "Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer" and "Not all who wander are lost" sayings. While I believe that those quotes are very inspiring and get me amped up to travel, I want to feature some more that are aren't as well-known (or at least all over Pinterest!).
