31 May Touring Belfast
Not a workday today, so we journeyed on the bus tour and got an excellent overview of the city.
One of the pictures is from Belfast Castle, and the other is from the front of City Hall where a flag protest was underway (you can ready about the controversy here).
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
