A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.
I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference.
As the traveler who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily to appreciate more lovingly our own.
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.
