Another quote about travel
I found this quote on this blog (written by a friend of a friend – thanks Kevin Yu) and that it’s well worth re-posting because it concisely summarized what seeing the world with your own eyes does to you.
Mark Jenkins once wrote, “Adventure is a path. Real adventure—self-determined, self-motivated, often risky—forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way, you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind—and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.”
