Here we have it: today’s Quote of the Week. Is there a favorite quote that you would like us to consider for a future post? Add it in the comments below, providing your first name and the full name of the author.
I have seen this quote attributed to the Prophet Mohammed and have also seen it vigorously disputed. For now, I will not claim to know the author, but if you have a reference, please let us know in the comments section.
Regardless of the origin of the quote, it represents an interesting perspective. Initially, I agreed, thinking of some of the mind-expanding, life-altering experiences that travel can bring. But it also requires something of the traveler, doesn't it? An open mind, a sense of curiosity, a willingness to have one's assumptions and cultural biases challenged and sometimes defeated – surely these must be present. But isn't that also the best way to approach education? It is as possible to successfully finish school without broadening your horizons as it is to return from traveling without having disturbed your existing mindset.
In my view, it comes down to how you approach life.
