This isn’t the first time the words of Mark Twain have appeared on this blog, and most likely it won’t be the last. Today he brings us more wisdom on the topic of, what else, travel.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. -Mark Twain

I think this quote is pretty self-explanatory and doesn’t require much analysis. Still, I love the idea that travel is a cure and an antidote to some of the harmful forces in our lives, that travel can heal us.

  • Great quote and I love what you’ve done to make it look nice too. In an interview with another travel blog, I listed Mark Twain as the person I’d love to travel with.

      Thanks John! I was inspired by something one of my graphic design friends did recently.

    This is my favorite travel quote yet – so beautiful! Travel truly does open your mind to both new places and new people.

      So true Sarah. And I think there is little in this world as valuable as an open mind.

  • Great quote! I do find that to be true actually, especially being from a small town where most people never make it beyond the closest big city… having traveled and experienced new things and different people and cultures where YOU are the minority definitely gives you a new perspective.

      Yes! It is definitely an out-of-body experience to be the minority and be unable to speak the language, understand the customs, etc. It’s such a valuable lesson.

    This travel quote is really great. It is easy to understand. Travel is a great way to relax and unwind.

    So, why don’t we send Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and all the other Republican knuckleheads and Tea Party freaks on an extended trip around the world for the next four years.

    Travel opens your eyes to so much beyond your small life. I bet Mark Twain would be an awesome travel buddy.
    LOL and I so agree with what your Dad said.

    One of my favorite quotes by Mark Twain. Possibly another way of saying that travel is the best education that you will ever get in life.
