Passage

Though it is irrational to imagine about travelling, but it is necessary to have an understanding of human nature. Only with long experience and the opening of his wares on many a beach, where his language is not spoken, will the merchant come to know the worth of what he carries and what is parochial and what is universal in his choice. Delicate goods like justice, love and honor, courtesy are indeed all the things we care for, are valid everywhere but they are variously molded and often differently handled and sometimes unrecognizable, if you meet them in a foreign land and the art of learning basic common values are perhaps the greatest gain of travel to those who wish to live at ease among their fellowmen.
