This quote from Mary Ritter Beard – a American historian, archivist, educationalist and suffragette activist – continues a theme I have visited in a number of my recent travel quotes, the personal growth and change that travel can bring. Seeing the sights – both those of natural beauty and manmade marvels – is a fantastic but fleeting experience but the memories and changes in one’s thinking can last forever.
