Travel Quote #6
Robert Louis Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer. He was greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling and Vladimir Nabokov.
Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature. It is only recently that critics have begun to look beyond Stevenson’s popularity and allow him a place in the Western canon.
This is one of his great quotes about the reason why we travel.
