Mark Twain on Travel

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.
Innocents Abroad

I have found out there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.
Tom Sawyer Abroad

…nothing so liberalizes a man and expands the kindly instincts that nature put in him as travel and contact with many kinds of people.

-Letter to San Francisco Alta California
