Mark Twain on Travel

If I were a riverboat gambler, I’d bet that you’ve already read the following quote more than once. Nevertheless, it’ is a timeless quote from a favorite of mine that I want to share each time I read it (so I will):

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.’”

~Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad

Stop talking and just go, already.
