A quote to ponder

“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

    And a counterpoint…

    Found in Tao teachings:

    “Going Abroad”

    One may know the world
    without leaving home.
    Through every window
    one can see the supreme Tao.
    The further afield one goes
    the less likely one is to find it.

    Therefore the Sage
    knows the world without traveling,
    sees all by looking withing,
    and accomplishes everything
    without doing anything.
