A man must travel

“A man must travel. On his own, not through stories, images, books or TV. He must travel alone, using his own feet and eyes, to understand what he has. So one day he can plant his trees and appreciate them. He must experience the cold to appreciate the heat. Or the other way around. Feel the distance and lack of shelter to feel well in his own home. A man must travel to break through this arrogance that makes us see the world as we imagine it, not like it really is; and makes us professors and experts of what we never saw, while we should be students, and just go see it.” – Amyr Klink
