20 Travel Quotes for the Free Spirit

Welcome to my monthly dose of favorite quotes for you all! I hope you enjoy! This month I am using quotes for the free spirited traveler! I am sure I will revisit this “quote topic” as it is one of my favorites! I hope you find some inspiration!


  1. “I like to be a free spirit. Some don’t like that, but that’s the way I am.”
    -Diana Princess of Wales
  2. “The only cure to all this madness; is too dream, far and wide, if possibility doesn’t knock, create a damn door. If the shoe doesn’t fit, don’t make it. If the journey your travelling seems to far fetched and wild beyond your imagination; continue on it, great things come to the risk takers. And last but not least, live today; here, right now, you’ll thank your future self for it later.”
    -Nikki Rowe
  3. “Balance is key. In everything you do. Dance all night long and practice yoga the next day. Drink wine but don’t forget your green juice. Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Wear high heels on Saturday and walk barefoot on Sunday. Go shopping at the mall and then sit down and meditate in your bedroom. Live high and low. Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are and live your authentic truth! Be brave and bold and spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence and patience and modesty and peace. Aim for balance. Make your own rules and don’t let anybody tell you how to live according to theirs.”
    -Rachel Brathen
  4. “The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.”
    -Charles Bukowski
  5. “Normality is a paved road, its comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow.”
    -Vincent Van Gough
  6. “By being yourself you put something wonderful into the world that was not there before.”
    -Edwin Ellliot
  7. “No one looks stupid when they are having fun.”
    -Amy Poehler
  8. “I just do my own thing.”
    -Audrey Hepburn
  9. “Always go with your passions. Never Ask yourself it is realistic or not.”
    -Deepak Chopra
  10. “Women always try to tame themselves as they get older, but the ones who look best are often a bit wilder.”
    -Miuccia Prada
  11. “My Philosophy is, It’s none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am. I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.”
    -Anthony Hopkins
  12. “If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.” -Maya Angelou
  13. “If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.”
    -Katharine Hepburn
  14. “I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”
    -Anais Nin
  15. “Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing.”
    -Hunter S. Thompson
  16. “Live a life full of the mind. Exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual.”
    -Ernest Hemingway
  17. “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
    -Roald Dahl
  18. “Be Daring. Be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play it safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of ordinary.”
    -Cecil Beaton
  19. “When you stop doing things for fun you might as well be dead.”
  20. “Forget not the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”
    -Kahil Gibran
