Q: What does Not all those who wander are lost. mean?
A: This is a quote from Lord of the Rings. It's very popular.
"to wander" means to walk or travel with no fixed destination or purpose. We often use this word to describe people who are lost and need directions.
So the phrase means that for some people, the journey is more important than the destination. They are moving without a goal, but they are not lost. They enjoy not having a fixed destination and going wherever they want. The phrase is popular with people who love to travel.

And are you sure someone said that to you? If you really want to know the meaning I could tell you. Actually, it's quite poetic, I'm pretty sure I heard this from a poem too 😊 (meanings are open for interpretation from poems)

Basically what this means is that just because someone likes to explore and do things their own way without an ultimate goal doesn't mean they're "lost" - not physically anyway, spiritually and mentally; they are prepared. To wander means to explore obliviously (in this sense) ) so what this line is saying is to enjoy the journey and to experiment in order to find the right solution in your life. Some people may not have goals set out, but that is okay - it's the journey that matters. 😊

Sorry, but it has quite a deep meaning so I can't imagine that someone would be sarcastic about it😄

Synonyms of "Wander" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between wandering and rambling and roaming ?
A: Wandering is more you are exploring an area, you are somewhat inquisitive and getting a general sense of things.

Rambling is more you don't have a specific direction or goal, like how you can ramble while speaking (drone on, not shut up), move about aimlessly.

Roaming is (hopefully others can correct me if I'm wrong) more searching for something specific. You could roam the woods looking for your engagement ring that you lost or the gingerbread man's house for example.

A: Personally, I'd say that wander is just walking around aimlessly, without a particular destination. You don't have to be lost. Perhaps that's a US / UK difference.
Stroll is a leisurely walk, usually for pleasure rather than to go somewhere.

I went for a stroll in the park = I had a leisurely stroll around the park
I wandered around town = I walked around town without a destination in mind

A: They're almost identical, suggesting aimless exploration. Wander is perhaps a little more aimless than roam, but they really are near-identical.
