Travel writing quotes

“Truly evocative writing flows from the writer’s ability to open the inner self, to dig in and explore what the senses reveal.  Setting down personal impressions can be a risky, vulnerable activity.  But confident writers are willing to be held accountable for their perceptions.  A writer’s self confidence endows the prose with an irresistible quality.”  L. Peat O’Neal

“The secret of the travel book is to make essayistic points seem to emerge empirically from material data intimately experienced.”  Paul Fussell
