French
Le seul véritable voyage, le seul bain de Jouvence, ce ne serait pas d'aller vers de nouveaux paysages, mais d'avoir d'autres yeux, de voir l'univers avec les yeux d'un autre, de cent autres, de voir les cent univers que chacun d'eux voit, que chacun d'eux est.

German
Die wahre Entdeckungsreise besteht nicht darin, neue Landschaften zu suchen, sondern mit neuen Augen zu sehen.

They change the sky, not their soul, who run across the sea.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.

It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.

Quotes about the Universe:
