Quotes by Richard Francis Burton
Of the gladest moments in human life‚ methinks is the departure upon a distant journey to unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit‚ the leaden weight of Routine‚ the cloak of many Cares and the Slavery of Home‚ man feels once more happy. The blood flows with the fast circulation of childhood....afresh dawns the morn of life...
Conquer thyself‚ till thou hast done this‚ thou art but a slave; for it is almost as well to be subjected to another's appetite as to thine own.
Starting in a hollowed log of wood — some thousand miles up a river‚ with an infinitesimal prospect of returning! I ask myself 'Why?' and the only echo is damned fool!... the Devil drives.
Is not man born with a love of change — an Englishman to be discontented — an Anglo-Indian to grumble?
The dearest ambition of a slave is not liberty but to have a slave of his own.
The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshipped anything but himself.
Travellers like poets are mostly an angry race.
Support a compatriot against a native, however the former may blunder or plunder.
