TRAVEL CAN BE FATAL
I ran across a great quote yesterday, written by one of the most brilliant men in history, and it reminded me why I’ve always loved cross-cultural work and getting people out of their pews and into the world. It broadens our worldview and reminds us that there are other people on this planet who matter … and it’s just plain good for us!
“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, 1857
