quote by Dorothea Benton Frank

I have always thought that librarians are a little bit like doctors, travel agents and professors all rolled into one. We all know that a great story can lift spirits, take you anywhere in the world you want to go and in any time period to boot, and the lessons you learn from a good book can buoy your own convictions and even change your life.

Most Powerful Travel Agents quotations

I wonder what an agent would do if he had to travel with the band he's booking.

Travel agents quote No matter how long you have traveled in the wrong direction, you always have the
No matter how long you have traveled in the wrong direction, you always have the choice to turn around.

You should definitely have a travel agent.

Why go through all the hassle of dealing with airlines, hotels, and rental-car agencies yourself, only to see the arrangements get all screwed up, when with just a single phone call you can have a trained professional screw them up for you?

Travel agents quote Travel and tell no one, live a true love story and tell no one, live happily and
Travel and tell no one, live a true love story and tell no one, live happily and tell no one, people ruin beautiful things.

Should you trust a stockbroker who's married to a travel agent?

I love trains. It's the only way to travel anymore where it doesn't involve a TSA agent slowly tracing the curve of my inner thigh.

A travel agent told I could spend 7 nights in HAWAII no days just nights.

Travel agents quote Travel far enough, you meet yourself.
Travel far enough, you meet yourself.

Swords, Lances, arrows, machine guns, and even high explosives have had far less power over the fates of nations than the typhus louse, the plague flea, and the yellow-fever mosquito. Civilizations have retreated from the plasmodium of malaria, and armies have crumbled into rabbles under the onslaught of cholera spirilla, or of dysentery and typhoid bacilli. Huge areas have bee devastated by the trypanosome that travels on the wings of the tsetse fly, and generations have been harassed by the syphilis of a courtier. War and conquest and that herd existence which is an accompaniment of what we call civilization have merely set the stage for these more powerful agents of human tragedy.

The weaknesses and biases of the international mechanisms of accountability make it seem desirable to extend the domain of accountability by empowering domestic courts to act as agents of the world legal system. Even if there is no consistent application of Universal Jurisdiction, it still leads those who might be prosecuted to alter their travel plans to avoid even the complication of waiting for a complaint to be dismissed.

My travels have always been of the same kind.

No matter where I've gone or why I've gone there it ends up that I never see anything. Becoming a movie star is living on a merry-go-round. When you travel you take the merry-go-round with you. You don't see natives or new scenery. You see chiefly the same press agents, the same sort of interviewers, and the same picture layouts of yourself.

If your project or organization depends on knowing things that other people don't know (but could find out if they wanted to), your days are probably numbered. Ask a travel agent The alternative, while difficult, is obvious. Provide enough non-commodity service and customization that it doesn't matter if the ideas spread. In fact, it will help you when they do.

Recollections of early childhood bear comparison to fairy tales, and .

.. youth remains an unknown country to whose bourn no traveler returns except as the agent of a foreign power.

What has happened to the good old-fashioned travel agent? I want to go to a really posh travel agent and have them organize everything for me. I don't want to do things on the Internet.

Travel agents quote I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.
I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.

Whenever I travel anywhere, I'm constantly asked if I'm Swedish.

It's the burden of most Norwegians. The Swedes have just got a better publicity agent, I think.

Sheer scholarship alone cannot reveal to us the gospel of grace.

We must never allow the authority of books, institutions, or leaders to replace the authority of KNOWING Jesus Christ personally and directly. When the religious views of others interpose between us and the primary experience of Jesus as the Christ, we become unconvicted and unpersuasive travel agents handing out brochures to places we have never visited.

Travel agents would be wiser to ask us what we hope to change about our lives rather than simply where we wish to go.
