A man needs to travel. By his own means, not by stories, images, books
or TV. By his own, with his eyes and feet, to understand what he is.
To some day plant his own trees and give them some value. To know the
cold to enjoy the heat. To feel the distance and lack of shelter to be
well under his own ceiling. A man needs to travel to places he doesn't
know to break this arrogance that makes us see the world as we imagine
it, and not simply as it is or may be. That makes us teachers and
doctors of what we have never seen, when we should just be learners,
and simply go see it."
