5. A vacation is like love: anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort, and remembered with nostalgia. -EVAN ESAR 

6. I have never believed that vacations are luxuries. They are our necessities--just like shelter, clothes, and food, they make us feel like humans and not like animals that care only for survival. -ALEXANDER BABINETS

 8. Few vacations are as gratifying as those devoted to personal growth.-PAT KOCH THALER

10. Vacations are seen as an antidote to work. They are medicine, a remedy for counteracting the effects of labor.... Vacations allow us to be away from the job, to change the patterns of our day, to alter our routine, to reconfigure our actions and habits, to rediscover ourselves. -AL GINI 

11. Vacations have become somewhat of a status symbol and a measuring device of how well we're keeping up with the Joneses. This is another path that leads directly into the "Artificial Wealth Trap."

The strategy here is simple: Do not use your credit cards to finance your travels. You may be living it up in the lap of luxury and relaxation while on vacation but ask yourself how relaxed you will feel when the bills come in. -J. J. CHILDERS 

12. A vacation should be just long enough for the boss to miss you, and not long enough for him to discover how well he can get along without you. -JACOB MORTON BRAUDE 

3. The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation. -MARK TWAIN 

14. Vacations are your best chance in the year to get in some real living, to get out of the job-as-life box, off automatic pilot, and rediscover your passions, enthusiasms, friends, family, and the vitality of partaking in the world outside career brainlock. Social scientists have found that leisure experiences increase positive mood, act as a buffer against life's setbacks, and open the door to the best times of our lives. -JOHN DE GRAAF 

15. The best thing about a vacation is planning it. -ANDREW A. ROONEY 

16. The vacation paradox is the idea that vacations are just something else we're to mark off from our to-do list. But that's not what vacations are designed for. They are designed to be times of meaning and purpose. So when we take vacations, we should be strategic and intentional. -ED YOUNG,
