31 May Touring Belfast

Not a workday today, so we journeyed on the bus tour and got an excellent overview of the city.

During the tour, I enjoyed hearing the students’ reactions to the trip so far.  The course is called “Leadership & Entrepreneurship in Ireland,” but the learnings go far beyond business.   The quotes below capture what the students are articulating in different ways:

“He who does not travel does not know the value of men.” – Moorish proverb

“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” – Unknown

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” – John A. Shedd

“Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled.” – Mohammed

“The world is a book and he who doesn’t travel only reads one page.” – St. Augustine

“Travel teaches toleration.” – Benjamin Disraeli

“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” – Lao Tzu

and finally… and most fitting…

“To travel is to take a journey into yourself.” – Danny Kaye
