Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime

“Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” - Mark Twain
This quote is from Mark Twains book The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It”, if you for some reason don’t know who Mark Twain is, he was an American author and humorist born in 1835, and his real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens. He is perhaps best known for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. He also travelled a fair bit, which is why he came up with this quote.
The reason I love this quote is that it talks about the importance of not ‘vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime’. Travelling the world really widens your horizon, and it is easier to do than people think. It is even possible to travel using free accommodation only, for more information, read 'How to start House sitting and live rent free'
