    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love your quotes and will be following cyleodennel’s lead and will be stealing some too! This is one of mine, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. 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
