“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine.

Yes true but even sadder not to read than not to travel. Travel and books are the only things worth spending money on apart of course from wine.

The second Viscount Mersey said these things were sad: to be a virgin: to speak only one language; not to have been abroad. What were the others on his list?

  1. This saying was coined before the birth of television, wasn't it?

    In today's Romania, many people don't read, neither travel, yet they think of themselves as being enriched by being coach potatoes, consumers of TV filth.
