Quote: Samuel Taylor Coleridge ...

Keep moving! Steam, or Gas, or Stage,
Hold, cabin, steerage, hencoop's cage --
Tour, Journey, Voyage, Lounge, Ride, Walk,
Skim, Sketch, Excursion, Travel-Talk --
For move you must! 'Tis now the rage,
The law and fashion of the Age.

-- from "The Delinquent Travellers," 1824
