Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.
Maya Angelou

To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.
Aldous Huxley

We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent on it's vulnerable reserves of air and soil, all committed, for our safety, to it's security and peace. Preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work and the love we give our fragile craft.
Adlai E. Stevenson

Wonderful quotes. You would think that by now we know so much about each other that prejudice would cease, but is has not helped.
