The value of travel in our lives

I enjoy reading and remembering favorite quotes, especially those that relate to travel—and by extension to our views of life in general. The following quote is a reminder that travel adds lasting value to our outlook on life beyond the sights we see and the photos we take.

Certainly travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.  Mary Ritter Beard
The experience of traveling casts a long shadow over our thoughts and colors our understanding of what is important to each of us personally and as citizens of the world.
