Quote help

Ok ladies! I need help with some quotes. I am making an accordian album for my BFF. In the album I am putting a few gift cards- Starbucks, Borders, and Southwest Airlines. I was looking for quotes or sentiments to put on the panel that holds the gift card.

For the Starbucks card I have: A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.- Unknown

Now I need ideas for the Borders and Southwest gift cards. She is an avid reader so maybe something about books, knowledge, etc. The southwest card is because she lives in Oregon and I am in Minnesota. She usually flies out to see me sometime in the spring.

Any help would be appreciated.

oo I love reading quotes.. off the google Smile

one I love but maybe not appropriate for the travel one:

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain

or this Lol "If you look like your passport photo, you're too ill to travel." -- Will Kommen

"Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey." -- Fitzhugh Mullan

"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." -- St. Augustine

The book one :

"For books are more than books, they are the life
The very heart and core of ages past,
The reason why men lived and worked and died,
The essence and quintessence of their lives." -- Boston Athenaeum

"Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill." -- Barbara Tuchman

and my favourite: "The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you the knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination." -- Elizabeth Hardwick

Wow!!! Good job Lauren! I am thinking much more simply though:

Flying: Let your soul be your guide.

Books: A good book can take you anywhere you want to go.

See??? GL Nancy!!
