We, humans, are crazy about exploring new adventures in life. travelers find their solace of adventure at their dream destination and non-travelers keep finding their ways to bask in the adventures in day-to-day life.
However, later or sooner by the time, we realized that the biggest adventure of our valuable life is to find our inner selves. It may sound a bit of being selfish; in reality, it is all about our own perspective of living life contentedly along with utmost happiness.
Here I have jotted down the 11 most influential yet practical quotes that personally keep reminding me to trail over the path that takes me to meet my true self.

11). The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust
A slight change in perspective changes the whole picture. When you start glancing at the problem from a different outlook it opens the door for more solutions. And that is the magic of finding your true self.
