The Great Affair is to Move

Robert Louis Stevenson on travel:

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilization, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.

From Robert Louis Stevenson, Travels With a Donkey in the Cevennes (1879).
