Huyen's favorite Quotes
Huyen is our community manager and social media guru here at Quotiful. He has a passion for travel, social entrepreneurship, and a deep appreciation for the study of human psychology. He's continually inspiring us to live richer, fuller, lives through experiences and lives a minimalistic, nomadic lifestyle that we all can admire. He's currently in Portland, Oregon but soon to be onto his next destination armed with his camera, laptop, and an "anything-is-possible" attitude. Below Huyen has shared some of his favorite quotes and given us some insight on what they mean to him.
Huyen: I think travel, real travel, is something we all yearn to do. We want to travel more because it enables us to know what it means to be free. Transversing the vastness of earth helps us see how small a space we really occupy. It's a great remedy for human ego. Our social constructs about the world lose their hold on us and we're free to expand our perspectives. Travel is what it means to experience freedom to the farthest reaches of its limitless shores.
Huyen: We are the sum of our experiences. They becomes part of us. I think it's important to differentiate between diversity of experiences and the longevity of an experience. I think the former is highly underrated in our business-oriented world. In the business world, people with more experience are valued. But outside that world, these individuals aren't necessarily more experienced. They simply have one year's worth of experience repeated many times over. In contrast, I've discovered that individuals with more experience in life overall, both positive and negative, are more interesting to talk to. They have a presence about them.
Huyen: Hard work and kindness never go out of style.
